I want to simulate the characteristics of DMB Mixer (Mini-Circuits ADE-1L) using a behavioral model in ADS called MIX1 (polinomial model for nonlinearity:3),

So from the manufacturer, Mini-Circuits, I have got the parameters that are most close to my application driving the LO with + 3dBm power :

- Conversion Loss = 5.32 dB
- Isolation between LO-RF = 60 dB
- Isolation between LO-IF = 46 dB
- Isolation between RF-IF = 28 dB
- IIP3 = +21 dBm ; P1dB = +0.78 dBm
- VSWR RF = 1.07:1 , VSWR LO = 1.85:1, VSWR IF = 1.70:1

How to to define (or translate) it in a such way ADS understand the above ?

I cannot find a way to complete the following parameters at mixer (MX1) properties :
- ImageRej : Image Rejection in dB at Output Port
- ConvGain : Conversion Gain, use x+j*y, polar(x,y), dbpolar(x,y) for complex value
- S11 : Forward Reflection Coefficient, use x+j*y, polar(x,y), dbpolar(x,y), vswrpolar(x,y) for complex value
- S22 : Reverse Reflection Coefficient, use x+j*y, polar(x,y), dbpolar(x,y), vswrpolar(x,y) for complex value
- S33 : LO Port Reflection Coefficient, use x+j*y, polar(x,y), dbpolar(x,y), vswrpolar(x,y) for complex value
- Z1, Z2 and Z3
- and others on the mixer properties.

Thank you
