Abstract
In millimeter wave space communication applications, where packaged devices are usually involved for enviromental and EMS protection reasons, distributed and parasitic effects become important for the design and performance evaluation of frequency translating mixers. Hence, the accuracy of the ususally adapted ideal exponential resistive diode-based mixer model is considered to be not adequate for the prediction of the spiurious-response suppression related to such millimeter wave frequency converters. In this paper the effects of parasitic and distributed diode capacitances in a single-tone spurious products evaluation for space qualified mixers, are investigated for frequencies up to 120 GHz.
