Abstract

A doubly balanced monolithic microwave passive mixers using novel configuration has been designed and fabricated through a 0.18μm CMOS process. The configuration of the doubly balanced mixer (DBM) can eliminate the use of two dual baluns for application in the conventional star mixer, as well as make the mixer more compact and simplify IF extraction to obtain wider IF bandwidth up to 18GHz, respectively. From the measured results, the fabricated DBM exhibits wideband performance, superior isolations and high dynamic range.
