Abstract

An investigation in to the asymmetry of the currentvoltage characteristics and the local-oscillator breakthrough in anti-parallel diode sub-harmonic mixers is presented. Twenty nine bare anti-parallel diode pair circuits, have been used to identify those aspects of the diode geometry, that have a strong influence on the diode mismatch and consequently the localoscillator breakthrough. The circuits were fabricated on a sixinch Gallium Arsenide high electron mobility transistor process.
