Paper Abstract

A simple technique to determine the beam-lead PIN diodeparameters at millimeter frequency has been developed. Theobtained parameters were used in the computer-aided design ofthe novel 60 GHz microstrip single-pole four-throw (SP4T)switch. The switch offers less than 4.0 dB insertion loss (includingabout 1.0 dB waveguide to microstrip-line transition pair loss andcircuit loss) and greater than 20 dB isolation in each path.Because of its planar configuration, the switch circuit is amenableto monolithic devices integration and the circuit configurationcan be easily implemented to single pole multi-throw switchdesign.
