NE612 – Balanced mixer with Local Oscillator
I am designing a circuit that implements an AM radio circuit that ultilises the IC Double mixer and Oscillator NE612. I was just wondering whether there is any standard symbol for this kind of IC.

There is no standard symbol for NE612, just a square box. You have to make a custom part in the CAD software or see if someone has done that. check these links on info of NE612 circuit and symbol….
The Rx mixer is followed by a IF stage featuring an NE592. The mixer’s balanced output is directly connected to the amplifier’s differential input, minimizing component count at this point.
The NE612 is an integrated circuit which contains a balanced mixer with its own on-board local oscillator and voltage regulator. The mixer can provide up to 18dB of gain at 45 Mhz, and the local oscillator will operate up to 200 Mhz.
I would be working on the Transverter first, as with this, I could try out the 9Mhz SSB Module that I already have. I would be building the Transverter for the 14 Mhz band depending on the values from my DC Receiver project using the NE612 IC
