Paper Abstract

A GaAs monolithic varactor multiplier has been developed for collision avoidance radars with a conversion efficiency of 31% @ 76.5 GHz when driven by 25dBm @ 38.25 GHz. This corresponds to nearly 20dBm (100mW) of output power at W-band. We believe this to be the best performance reported to date for a diode-based monolithic multiplier at this output frequency.
