Mixers are essential building blocks of every RF transceiver, often compromising the noise and linearity performance of the entire receive or transmit chain. In this short course various mixer architectures such as passive vs. active, current-mode vs. voltage-mode, and their properties are analyzed and discussed. Of special importance, is the noise response of the mixers which is not very well understood due to the nonlinear and time variant nature of the block. We will focus on intuitive and qualitative ways of analyzing the noise of both passive and active mixers. More advanced topics such as 25% vs. 50% duty cycle design trade-offs, low/high side gain imbalance in complex receivers, as well as effects of noise and nonlinearity folding in both receivers and transmitters are discussed.
