  • Abstract


    Mixer chips have wide functionality, which is not always declared by the manufacturer. The purpose of the experimental study is to prove the possibility of implementing a frequency multiplier based on the mixer chip LTC5553. An experimental study of the LTC5553 chip in the mode of frequency multiplication was performed 2, 4 and 6 times. The second harmonic transmission coefficient is not less than minus 17.25 dB, for the fourth harmonic not less than minus 35 dB, for the sixth harmonic - not less than minus 42.67 dB. The transmission power factor depends little on the input power. Recommendations for modes of using a mixer as a frequency multiplier are given.
