hi
i m have designed gilbert mixer now i m trying to find its input impedance. i have used single to differential network (not balun) for Rf and LO port. now how input impedance is measured i m working in cadence spectre. anyone have some idea please reply me.

LO Input Impedance has less importance compare to RF/IF Input Impedance because LO port is driven hardly to commutate the mixer pairs.RF/IF Input Impedance can be found easily by
s-parameter simulation or LSSP simulation.Differential impedances are found by termination "port" component to associated inputs.Then you should check Sxx on the Smith Chart or look at ZMx.
