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.
