Abstract
A computer simulation based on the techniques developed by Kerr has been developed that takes into account the physical presence of the pad-to-pad capacitance inherent in antiparalletpair planar diode chips. Me computer simulation is used to examine the effect of the pad-to-pad capacitance on the performance of subharmonio mixers at millimeter wave frequencies. It is shown that for the best mCxer performance the optimum pad-to-pad capacitance is dependent on the anode diameter and series inductance of the anti-parallel pair- diodes. This stresses the need for an accurate measurement of the loop inductance in an antip.arallel-pair planar subhannonic
