  4. Abstract:
  5. In this paper a self-oscillating mixer is presented fundamental signal generated by the oscillator subcircuit in the mixing process. The oscillator core consumes 3mA of current from a 1.8 V DC supply and results in an output power of -0.867 dBm per oscillator, and a measured phase noise of -91, -102 and -108 dBc/Hz at 100 KHz, 600 KHz and 1 MHz from the carrier, respectively. In the mixing process the proposed mixer achieved IIP3 of 0 dBm with conversation gain of 1.93 dB. The circuit was designed and simulated in 0.18-μm CMOS technology by ADS2010
