Besser Associates and Microwave Journal magazine have presented a free webcast on Mixers and Frequency Conversion. This one-hour webcast has been presented by instructor Allen Podell, and the recording is now available for viewing. Frequency conversion is a critical function in all wireless systems. A key component used to accomplish this is the mixer. Designers need to understand different mixer topologies and specifications in order to meet their system requirements. This webinar provides a brief overview of frequency conversion and introduces the mixer as the component used to accomplish this function.
