Mixer, Converter, Multiplier, Modulator & Transceiver Design

Mixers, converters, multipliers, modulators & transceivers are all lumped together on this page since they all involve some sort of frequency translation, either up or down. Often, the terms can be interchanged. This way no matter what you have come in search of, it should be listed here.

These websites contain information relating to mixer, converter, multiplier, modulator, and transceiver design including white papers, datasheets, tutorials, and online write-ups.
