Paper Abstract

Using silicon as the substrate material SIMMWIC (Silicon Monolithic Millimeter Wave Integrated Circuit) oscillators and receivers are successfully realized. For the coplanar oscillators a slot is used as the resonant structure in which a monolithically integrated IMPATT diode selectively grown by Silicon molecular beam epitaxy (Si-MBE) acts as the negative resistance device. Pulsed and CW operation of the planar oscillators is achieved in the 90 GHz region. The output power is either radiated from a planar Vivaldi antenna or directly from the resonant slot. Complete receivers with monolithic Schottky diodes together with the antenna are integrated on a single chip.
