Abstract
A broadband second harmonic mixer was developed using unigue planar transmission line design techniques. Prototype devices demonstrate broadband performance from 18 GHz to 40 GHz with local oscillator (LO) drive levels of +13 dBm. A novel internal circuit topology allows for a full band coaxial interface (precision 2.4 mm or K connector) or band limited waveguide interface increasing overall configuration and integration flexibility. The design approach can be modified for fundamental or even harmonic (2) mixing schemes depending on available LO source.
