hello all, recently i'm simulating the diode ring mixer. the "on" and "off" state is often used to analyze the mixer. I'm curious how to judge the on and off state of the diode, then i simulate them in ads, and compare the power of the ends of the diode. But something strange happened. usually, the diode is turned on with saturated power. what i see through simulation is that with the increasing input power, i.e. the diode is gradually saturated, the diode shown more like "off"…… in the following figure, the difference between the ends of the diode increased. IF the diode is "on", should't it be decreased? having considering for a long time but in vain, any idea will be appreciated.
