The second of two authoritative, highly practical volumes, this hands-on resource covers active and nonlinear circuits, and introduces advanced topics in RF circuit and system design. The book opens with an overview of active RF devices and their modeling. It explores nonlinear circuit simulation techniques such as harmonic balance, and extensively illustrates the use of CAD tools in active circuit design throughout. This is a tested and insightful book that contains answers to most of the questions practical engineers are asking. In this thoroughly practical second volume, you learn the theory behind linear and low-noise RF amplifiers, high power RF transistor amplifiers, oscillators, mixers, and frequency multipliers, so you gain an intuitive understanding of their operation.... compared to the RF, a substantial amount of LO radiation can leak out the antenna and advertise the presence of the mixer to all other receivers. 7.2.2 Single-balanced mixer A single-balanced mixer uses two diodes connected back -to-back as shown in Figure 7.9. ... This could correspond to the center tap and the differential input of a coupling transformer, respectively, as shown in Figure 7.9(b).
