Abstract

This paper presents the design and implementation of Ka band broadband hybrid integrated image rejection mixer with a fourth harmonic mixer as unit mixer. Detailed design and analysis have been carried out. The mixer was fabricated by hybrid microwave integrated circuit (HMIC) process based on the thin film ceramic substrate which can reduce the cost compared to monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC). The measured results showed conversion loss less than 11.2 dB and image rejection ratio (IRR) more than 20 dB in 4 GHz RF bandwidth. It can also play the role of up-converter from the test data.
