Abstract

A compact 5.2GHz upconversion micromixer using the 0.35m SiGe HBT technology is demonstrated. A bandpass and area-saving LC current mirror using the active inductor is incorporated to increase the conversion gain. The demonstrated upconverter has conversion gain of -3.5dB, OP1dB of -10dBm, and OIP3 of 0dBm.
