Virtually all analyses of the superconductor-insulator-superconductor (SIS) quasiparticle mixer have employed the quantum theory of mixing in its three-frequency approximate form. This approximation is valid only in the limit of very large junction capacitance. For finite capacitance, these analyses may be seriously in error. To remedy this, a computer program has been developed which uses the quantum theory of mixing in its most general form, treating the large-signal properties of the mixer in the time domain. The terminating impedances at the harmonics of the local oscillator frequency and their sidebands can be arbitrary. Using this analysis, the effect of finite junction capacitance on one SIS mixer's performance is described. This gives an insight into the range of validity of the three-frequency model.
