Abstract

The purpose of this thesis is to present a design for a balanced microwave mixer, operating in the X-band region(S-12 GHZ). The major emphasis of this work is on the coupling structure of the mixer. A 3-db interdigitated Lange coupler is designed, fabricated, and tested. The design obtained through numerical procedures is compared with that obtained with the TOUCHSTONE CAD package. A brief comparison between this coupler and other commonly used couplers is also presented. The diode circuitry of the mixer is discussed in detail, focusing mainly on the operation of the Schottky barrier diode, and finally a total layout of the mixer is discussed.
