Design of 100-900 GHz AlGaAs/GaAs Planar Heterostructure Barrier Varactor Frequency Triplers
Paper i proceeding, 1998

In this paper we offer a simple set of accurate frequency-domain design equations that can be used to calculate optimal embedding impedances and tripling efficiency. These equations can be used for a wide range of device and circuit parameters. The effects of parasitic resistance and operating temperature on device performance, and how these parameters vary with device design are explored. Comparisons to experiment are made for planar HBVs demonstrating at least 3 % efficiency at 78 GHz input frequency and 50 mW of input power.
