Crystal Controlled Frequency Converter Circuit

Posted on Feb 27, 2013

The second gate (G2) of a MOSFET can be used to incorporate a crystal oscillator into the same stage as a frequency mixer. Although old hat with tubes, this scheme is seldom seen in dual-gate MOSFET circuitry. L3, 03, and XI form the crystal oscillator, and T2 is an IF output transformer. T1 and 01 are tuned to the converter input frequency.
