Development of an extremely wide-band planar frequency doubler from Q-band to W-band Academic Article uri icon


  • A very broadband Q- to W-band MIC frequency doubler with a 28-GHZ band-width, employing a unique planar balanced circuit configuration, has been developed with good performance. Using two beamlead Schottky barrier diodes as varistors, the doubler exhibits an output power of 71 dbm and conversion loss of 131 db over the 66 to 94 GHZ output frequency range. The development demonstrates a unique concept in realizing wideband planar millimeter wave solid-state sources. 1987 Plenum Publishing Corporation.
