Mixers, Frequency Converters & Modulators

Keysight offers various software tools for design, synthesis, and simulation of mixers, frequency converters and modulators. Keysight's Advanced Design System (ADS) and Genesys EDA tools include multiple examples, templates and DesignGuides that enable you to quickly get started with your mixer design projects.

Once you have designed your mixer and built a prototype, Keysight offers a wealth of test and measurement equipment that can help you measure and validate your design.

WhatIF Frequency Planning Synthesis 
When selecting LO and IF frequencies in RF systems for receivers or transmitters, it is extremely tideous to identify all interfering frequency mixing spurious and intemod signals that result near the desired IF. Learn how to do frequency planning quickly and interactively compare high-side or low-side mixing to obtain a spurious-free frequency plan that requires minimal filtering. This video also shows how to perform multi-band down conversion frequency planning to a common IF for economical realization.
