Harmonic Mixers with Diplexer
Diplexer mixer port and mixer should be connected using the sma male to male adapter supplied or a short cable that is low in loss up to 12 GHz. Conversion loss will vary depending upon LO frequency and LO power level.
The harmonic mixer and subharmonic mixer are a type of frequency mixer, which is a circuit that changes one signal frequency to another. The ordinary mixer has two input signals and one output signal. If the two input signals are sinewaves at frequencies f1 and f2, then the output signal consists of frequency components at the sum f1+f2 and difference f1−f2 frequencies. In contrast, the harmonic and subharmonic mixers form sum and difference frequencies at a harmonic multiple of one of the inputs. The output signal then contains frequencies such as f1+kf2 and f1−kf2 where k is an integer.
