The conversion gain of MESFET gate mixers has been calculated based on the directly measurable S- und Y-parameters, respectively. The analytical results show that parasitic mixing products can be neglected and that the reactions can be suppressed by shorting the IF at the gate and the signal, image, and sum frequency at the drain. The gain which has been… CONTINUE READING
