Original Kiss Mixer

“KISS” is an acronym for “Keep It Simple, Stupid”.

Chris Trask,  N7ZWY, has deconstructed a range of switching mixers ranging from the familiar diode double balanced mixer to the acclaimed H-Mode mixer. He has reconstructed the basic operating principles into a very simple but high performance topology that has only one transformer and a package of inexpensive CMOS bus switches. His original article can be found here:

I’ll be building one of these in the near  future and sharing my results here. Stay tuned….
