Many analog electronics book has a chapter on analog multiplier. Razavi CMOS design book has a small section on this under differentail amplifier section. Gray/Meyer book should have it too. And many more...search in IEEE website helps or if you can find, get the classic paper by Barry gilbert, the inventor of gilbert (...)

Search for paper by Razavi or Abidi online or at their UCLA website. They wrote quite a considerable amount on gilbert multiplier.

i want to know is gilbert cell can act as a Frequency Doubler...from this circuit,
the sentence"doubling the unity gain cutoff frequency of the amplifier"
means the frequency has become bigger since the bandwidth is bigger?

I am trying to plot the ac response of a gilbert cell multiplier. I have set the differential pair inputs as V1 + v1 and V1 - v1. For the quad transistors, I have given V2 + v2 and V2 - v2 as inputs. To perform ac analysis, I have set the quad pairs ac magnitude as 0 and the diff pairs ac magnitude as 1, now after performing the (...)

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?

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.

Reviewing this classical document, I was aware that Vahab actually didnt't mention if the application is kHz or MHz domain. For low frequency (e. g. audio) range, a log/antilog circuit, either as an IC or built from individual parts, is offering superior dynamic, for high frequency, only gilbert-cell multiplier circuits or thermal detectors (...)

Signals can be added with a summing amplifier

Multiplication can be done with a gilbert cell but these are rather complex when built discretely. There are IC circuits which can perform this for you.

A multiplier is basically a nonlinear circuit, needing non-linear elements other than OPs.
Depending on the intended operation (1/2/4-quadrant), dynamic and frequency range, different multiplier circuits or ICs are available. Some of them are
log/antilog mutiplier (1-Q, high dynamic, limited bandwidth)
basic gm-multiplier, also OTA-IC (...)

Chopping method should be one type of multiplication. The classical chopping mixer is gilbert cell, which topology is simple. Performance trade-off is good.
Multipling mixer often consists of many devices, which topology is complex. They often realize frequency conversion through current multiplicaion.

my design is to replace PLL to get a 50% duty design include a gilbert cell as a frequency multiplier follow by a frequency divider(divide by 2 -D flip-flop)
jitter problem for input is input is just a pulse wave(~48Mhz) so phase lock i ignore
my question is .. is this simple design will be succcesfull?

Let me mention another method for a frequency doubler circuit, apparently neglected by many people, which is a four quadrant multiplier or known as gilbert cell. If you connect the two inputs together and apply a sinusoidal input, you will get a DC term + a double frequency sinusiodal voltage at the output. It is nearly as wid

We all know that the mixer is just a multiplier that can be modeled mathematically as
V_out = m(t) * cos(wc*t)
where: m(t) is the input modulating signal
wc is the carrier frequency
if we are upconverting from an IF-frequency then
V_out = cos(w_IF*t) * cos(wc*t) = 0.5*(cos((wc+w_IF)t)+cos((wc-w_IF)t)))
And we are interested

I fear, the term voltage controlled amplifier isn't very clear. I presume, you are referring to a variable gain amplifier (VGA). It comes in different flavours with rather different specifications regarding bandwidth, linearity and dynamic range. The classical building block for VGAs is a gm multiplier respectively a gilbert cell, comprised (...)

You only have half a gilbert cell so you are unbalanced and will see some DC bias shift as well.
Assuming ideal transistors (no Early effect) and low input voltages to keep the linear range, there will be no bias, I think. The circuit is a standard gm multiplier, respectively single stage OTA with I/V converter.

To use it right in a VCA structure, you should understand the basic limitations regarding voltage range, linearity, matching of multiple transistors.
All high performance VCA ICs are essentially analog multipliers
