Development of high power HBV multipliers for millimeter wave applications
Paper i proceeding, 2007

We present a high-power frequency tripler for 110 GHz and a quintupler for 200-210 GHz. The tripler (×3), that is based on a single HBV diode, produces 240 mW of output power with a 3-dB bandwidth of 6%. This is the highest output power ever recorded for an HBV based multiplier irrespective of output frequency. The module features an ultra-compact waveguide block design, and a microstrip matching circuit on high-thermal-conductivity AlN to improve the power handling capability. Furthermore, we present an HBV quintupler (×5) that delivers more than 20 mW at 202 GHz.
