RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

double quadrature detection - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. If the folks at phpBB would release a version with integrated sign-in from the major social media platforms, I would resurrect the RF Cafe Forums, but until then it is probably not worth the effort. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Dear All,

Does any one know her I can find a description/analysis of the so called double quadrature detector? This is basically two IQ detectors acting on the RF signal and on a 180 shifted version of RF. Then, you make 0-180 and 90-270, to get I and Q.

This is supposed to have better performance than the simple IQ detector, but I don't know why.

Tanks

If I understand what you're talking about, a double quadrature converter is where basically where two sets of I/Q mixing paths are used. The I signal is mixed with the 0deg and 90deg LO signal to create basically an Ii and an Iq signal, and the Q path is mixed with the same 0deg and 90deg LO to create a Qi and a Qq signal. Then the Iq and the Qi are mixed to generate the Q output, and the Ii and Qq are mixed to generate the I output. What results is a cancelling of the image frequency in a way that is more broadband that when done only with diodes and transformers. I tried to find a good picture of it for you online but couldn't find anything.
