A transconductance multiplier correlator with a bandwidth in excess of 1 GHz is described. Computer modelling techniques were utilized in the circuit design. A balun is used to provide a balanced drive to the bases of the transistors in the multiplier differential pair and thereby reduce the self-detection of input signals. For frequencies below 1 GHz, the self-detection of signals at either input contributes less than 1.5% to the corresponding detected output.
