Analysis of Symmetric Varactor Frequency Multipliers
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 1997

We investigate efficiency limitations of frequency multipliers with the use of a simple model for symmetric varactors. Our calculations show that the conversion efficiency is improved for a C(V) shape with large nonlinearity at zero volt bias. For quintuplers, the optimal embedding impedance at the third harmonic is an inductance in resonance with the varactor diode capacitance.
