The concept of composite right left-handed transmission lines provides for one additional degree of freedom in realizing arbitrary dual-band frequency response devices. In this letter, an arbitrary dual-band operation mixer, based on the classical balanced mixer topology is proposed. The prototype demonstrates the mixer performance for a ratio of 2.5 between the two operation bands (860 MHz and 2,150 MHz). The conversion losses are better than 8.5 dB in both bands. © 2007 IEEE.
