Delay line phase noise discriminator

Question asked by RF_ENG001 on Apr 17, 2020

I am making a phase discriminator ADS.


I am using phasenoise modulator to add phase noise to my vco. Then using discriminator I should be observing the

phase noise at the output of mixer. The time delay should be set in order to have quadrature mixing. That is why

td * wo = pi/2


However, I cannot get a correct spectrum for output voltage of mixer.


The first figure is my phase noise in baseband after demodulation.

The second figure is the discriminated phase noise using a delay line and mixer (Vout of mixer).


Where do I make a mistake ?
