The noise of such Gilbert cell based analog multipliers far exceeds that of the traditional mixer.

My little HP5065 project is continually running into the jitter of

Everybody seems to be using traditional diode-mixers for DMTD,
and to be honest I fail to see the attraction.
Why wouldn't a analog multiplier like AD835 be better idea ?
What am I overlooking ?

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
