Abstract

The design and development of mm-wave fin-line and crossbar suspended stripline balanced mixer with GaAs beamlead diodes for Ka-Band downconverters is described. A conversion loss of 5.9±0.6 dB over the frequency band 32 to 36 GHz has been achieved in a crossbar stripline structure, and 6.5±0.7 dB over the frequency band 26.5 to 40 GHz in a fin-line with suspended stripline structure. Integrated circuit components, such as suspended stripline filters and transitions were also developed.
