The properties of the combinatorial frequency generation and wave scattering by periodic stacks of nonlinear passive semiconductor layers are explored. It is demonstrated that the nonlinearity in passive weakly nonlinear semiconductor medium has the resistive nature associated with the dynamics of carriers. The features of the combinatorial frequency generation and the effects of the pump wave scattering and parameters of the constituent semiconductor layers on the efficiency of the frequency mixing are discussed and illustrated by the examples.
