Mixing two signals for Radar application

Hi list,
I am in the process of building an FMCW radar. For this
to work, I have to mix two signals. I tried to do it with the
“multiply” block but no luck. I tried then to see how exactly this
block works. It seems that it does not behave As it should be. Referring
to
theory, I should see the sum and the difference of the two signals.
Looking at
the FFT plot, I can’t say that works.

What am I doing wrong? Am I missing something?

Hi Dimitris,

in theory, mixing should be exactly what you’re doing - the
multiplication of a signal with another one.

Without you posting what your flow graph looks like or what the signal
you get out of it actually is, helping you might be a bit hard…
Please supply as much information as necessary to understand what
might be going wrong :wink:

Greetings,
Marcus

That’s true for real mixing. I assume you’re doing complex multiplying.
