High Power HBV Multipliers
Paper i proceeding, 2007
We present a high-power frequency tripler for 100 GHz. The tripler - that is based on a single HBV diode - produces >200 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.
