A radio receiver is an electronic gadget that gets radio waves and changes over the information carried by them to a different format. It is utilized with an antenna. The receiving wire intercepts radio waves and changes over them to little alternating currents which are connected to the receiver, and the receiver extricates the specified data. The receiver uses electronic channels to isolate the specified radio frequency signal from all the other signals picked up by the antenna, an electronic amplifier to extend the control of the signal for further processing, and at long last recuperates the specified information through demodulation. There are many radio receivers accessible. TRF (Tuned Radio Recurrence) receiver is utilized in early days. It contains a drawback of increment within the number of sidebands. It has been overcome by the Super-heterodyne receiver. It has given the specified yields by dodging the pointless sidebands of employing a mixing circuit basically called as mixer. The simulation of mixer is performed utilizing ADS.
