Mixers: Measuring Performance

Mini-Circuits policy for product measurement and preparation of specifications is straightforward: present the facts so the design engineer can evaluate product data for his or her circuit and system requirements and arrive at a proper design decision. For mixers, which involve control of three signals at different frequencies, particular care is necessary.
