General Description

The Mixer component provides a single-ended modulator. The Mixer component can be used for frequency conversion of an input signal using a fixed Local Oscillator (LO) signal as the sampling clock. The manipulations of signal frequencies that a mixer performs can be used to move signals between frequency bands or to encode and decode signals. A mixer can be used to convert signal power at one frequency into power at another frequency to make signal processing easier, typically shifting higher frequencies to baseband.
