Contribution to Conference
In this paper system level parameters for the compression behavior as well as second and third order distortions of a six-port communications receiver with analog I/Q regeneration are determined by system simulations. The parameter values are qualified for a range of local oscillator (LO) signal powers. A recommendation for a well-suited LO signal power is derived from the resulting parameter plot. The recommended LO signal power is supported by investigation of the receiver's conversion efficieny. The results are also valid for other ways of I/Q regeneration based on passive mixing. © 2007 IEEE.
