I am a first time analogue designer and need help with my gilbert cell multiplier(CMOS 0.18um technology). The problem is that my circuit doesn't bias correctly.I work in low frequency. the output that I need, the plot of four quadrant of multiplier.

Can you please tell me
- the difference between gilbert cell and four quadrant multiplier?
- what will affect the output frequency in four quadrant multiplier. i.e. the output frequency will be a multiple of both input or division of them?

If you fed the same signal u(t)=U*sinωt to both inputs of the gilbert cell, it will multiply the two signals.
Therefore, you will get:
The term cos(ωt-ωt)=cos(0)=1 represents just a DC component.
But the term cos(ωt+ωt)=cos(2ωt)

For a 0.18um MOS gilbert cell mixer, simulations show me that the drain current of the switching pair is not a sqare wave, but something like a half sinusoidal curve, the peak is not flat, no matter how i increase the LO power. Therefore it consists of not only the odd order harmonics, but also even order harmonics. i want to know how t

Hi all I am currently interested in the gilbert cell mixer and wonder
how it is supposed to be driven....
The L.O. is fed to the dubble differrential. Should they be driven into saturation ?
The dubble differential is cascoded on a single differential to where the RF is fed. Saturation driven ?
Perhaps somebody has a reference to a unbala

Yes, it should be work as a switch.
So I bias it to make the Vce≈Vbe.
And you should simulation the IP3 of it to select the best point.

Well, a mixer and multiplier are of same type of architecture. The function realized by a multiplier and the mixer are the same.
So, you must be using Spectre for simulation which is fine. Usually people use single quadrant gilbert cell type.

In a CMOS double balanced gilbert cell mixer, because M3 to M6 are operating as a switch, is baised at Vds = Vgs - Vt.
M3 to M6 have the same devices characteristics(W/L , Cox and so on) and since 2 of the FET are operating at any time with their drain current being equal, their drain current is Iss/2. Iss being the current from Vdd.
