Monolithic planar arrays containing in excess of 1000 Schottky diodes have produced watt level output at 66 GHz in a doubler configuration in excellent agreement with large signal predictions of the frequency multiplication. Current efforts are concentrated on fabricating and developing arrays of novel barrier-intrinsic-N+ (BIN) diode which promise increased performance in tripler and quintupler configurations.
