F-band resistive mixer based on heterostructure field effect transistor technology
Paper i proceeding, 1993
A fundamentally pumped millimeter wave resistive mixer based on an HFET technology working at F-band (90-140 GHz) is described for the first time. Nonlinear simulations have been performed for this mixer based on an specially designed double δ-doped pseudomorphic HFET device developed for this application. A minimum conversion loss between 12 to 13 dB was measured with the RF fixed at different frequencies between 108 to 114 GHz at an RF power of -13 dBm. Both theoretical and experimental results are presented in this paper.
