Improved two tone, third order testing
Two-tone, third-order intermodulation distortion (IM) expresses the degree of non-linearity of an amplifier or mixer. Normally, this parameter is not expressed on data sheets because it is dependent upon operating frequencies, terminating impedance and input levels.
How to select the proper mixer
Mixers are abundant in electronic systems ranging from inexpensive consumer products to sophisticated military hardware.
Frequently asked questions
Frequently asked questions and answers.
Figure of Merit of Mixer Intermod Performance (E Factor)
With increased demand on communication systems, today’s receivers and transmitters need to handle multiple carriers, some wanted and some unwanted. When these carriers arrive at the input of a mixer they combine with each other to generate intermodulation
Dual double balanced mixers (HJK, HUD)
What was once considered adequate performance in terms of dynamic range—mixer noise figure at the low-level end of the dynamic range and third-order intercept point (IP3) at the high-level end—is no longer good enough.
Triple balanced, low cost, LTCC mixers (MCA)
Double Balanced Mixers are used widely in frequency translation applications. Some of the advantages of the double balanced mixer are good L-R and L-I isolation and moderate R-I isolation.

Electromagnetic Waves and Antennas
Communications, antenna, radar, and microwave engineers must deal with the generation, transmission, and reception of electromagnetic waves. Device engineers working on ever-smaller integrated circuits and at ever higher frequencies must take into account wave propagation effects at the chip and circuit-board levels.
