dc.description.abstractThis work describes the application of a commercial CAD software to implement load-pull techniques in the design of microwave mixers. This method is used to generate conversion-loss regions when a diode is pumped and operated as a mixer circuit. Emphasis is placed on the inclusion of image and out-of-band terminations to optimize the operating conditions required to obtain low conversion loss. An X-band 5-dB conversion-loss mixer is designed and tested using this method
