A 175 GHz HBV Frequency Quintupler With 60 mW Output Power
Journal article, 2012

In this letter, we present a fixed tuned 175 GHz frequency quintupler with 60 mW output power. The peak efficiency is 6.3% and the 3 dB bandwidth is 8 GHz. The multiplier is based on a single Heterostructure Barrier Varactor (HBV) diode that is flip-chip soldered into a microtsrip matching circuit. All the matching is done “on-chip” and there is no need for dc bias. The multiplier block is very compact (25 x 9 x 8 mm^3).
