This paper presents a 90-GHz-band high-gain monolithic balanced gate mixer. IF impedance of the balanced gate mixer is approximated from a small-signal equivalent circuit, and conversion gain of the mixer is improved by using an external IF balun with high impedance-transforming ratio. The maximum conversion gain of 8.2 dB is achieved at LO power of 0 dBm. Effectiveness of the described mixer is confirmed experimentally
