Abstract

This paper presents a novel even harmonic mixer using self-biased anti-parallel diode pair (APDP). Resistors for self-bias are employed in APDP, and voltage differences in D.C. arise at each diode when LO power is applied. As increasing of LO power, voltage differences become larger, so maximum voltages of LO wave added to each diode are almost constant and conversion loss of the mixer is kept constantly. In the developed L-band even harmonic mixer using self-biased APDP for a direct conversion receiver, fluctuation of voltage conversion gain is below 1dB with LO power of from 0dBm to 14dBm.
