We report on the status of SIS mixers being constructed at the Institute of Astronomy and Astrophysics, Academia Sinica. These mixers will later be integrated into the receiver systems used on the ASIAA supplied antennas for the SMA project. We have reproduced the SAO design for these mixers at the 200 GHz band. We achieve acceptable noise performance across the tuning band of the mixers.
