Your easiest option is a diode ring mixer. at the bottom of the page are low level LO mixers you can use. Be sure to follow the mixer with a bandpass filter to remove the image at 65 MHz and the LO feedthrough at 75 MHz.
It is best to put a 6 dB pad between the mixer output and the filter. Put the 1

If the ring diode mixer use two proper baluns transformers, this will provide a relative wideband 50 ohm input/output impedance (better than -10dB return loss) and do not require any additional matching (up to one decade).
If the mixer use printed baluns, the bandwidth is smaller (up to one octave).
In either cases can use additional (...)

Are you asking for information on how to insure that the LOs for I and Q are 90 degrees apart?
One trick is to use an analog diode ring mixer. Put one of your oscillators to the LO and the other to the RF port of the mixer. You should get 0 V out if they are 90 degrees apart. Make sure to measure the mixer output (...)

Any nonlinear device, such as a transistor driven with large signals or diodes will produce mixing products. The advantage of using the diode ring is that the RF and LO signals are almost absent from the output and thus less IF filtering is needed.

The mixer using a ring directional coupler is a nice choice for UP converters, although you don't have a good OL rejection. Keep in mind however that one key point for a successful mixer design is to choose a suitable diode. Consult the HP web site. They have some charts to help you to choose a correct diode for your (...)

One thing that controls your design is if the 100 MHz or the 2.4 GHz signals cover a wide range of frequencies. You will have enough problems with mixing images as it is. Then with the feedthrough of a single balanced mixer things will be worse. Have you thought of a transformer-diode ring type mixer?

Use the classical cascade calculation algebra and use the noise figure and gain as numbers (not dB). This formula works for all passive and active stages. Passive stages have the noise F as the loss value. A 3 dB resistive attenuator has a gain of -3 dB and a noise figure of 3 dB. Diode ring mixers usually have a noise figure that is 2 dB worse

A mixer is not a sampler.
A square wave make an excellent LO - it essentially toggles the polarity of the RF signal. This provides higher conversion gain, lower noise, and lower LO feedthrough than if you used a sinewave LO.
That's why high-level diode-ring mixers perform so well. The LO sinewave gets clipped into a square wave.

In fact using a mixer as a modulator you can get only an AM modulation. In your case you can get an AM signal with suppressed carrier or a DSB (Double Side Band).
You can visualize the DSB IF output of your modulator using a standard analog oscilloscope. The waveform should look like in the attached picture.

Yes, a diode ring can be used.
I guess that the generation can be optimized with some phase difference between LO and RF inputs. For example, if RF would be square wave, it should be in quadrature with LO for maximum efficiency (if they are in phase, the 2nd order product would cancel).
As another possibility, you can use a push-push configuration.

The LO power is independent of which output mixing product you use. It is set by the technology of the mixer circuit. In general, diode ring mixers require more LO power than active mixers.

Or it could be the type used in Ham/CB microphone plugs although it lacks the locking ring. It could just be a 7-pin 270 degree DIN connector, an in-line socket type. If DOD are still around it would be worth checking with them. From the pin sizes I would guess they are only rated at about 2A so that gives you an idea of the power requirements.

The cheaper minicircuits diode ring mixers allow bidirectional conversion. Look at the circuit to make sure there are only two tansformers and four diodes. The main problem if you use low side mixing is the large number of mixing products in band. If you can, use high side mixing. That is, make the LO frequency be the sum of the two frequencies
