Up-Converting Mixer

Agilent Technologies products:

An Up-Converter translates an information-carrying signal from a lower (IF) frequency to a higher frequency, often the frequency of transmission, by mixing the IF signal with a Local Oscillator (LO) signal to create a signal at the sum of these two frequencies.
