Abstract:

New fully integrated low-cost, low-phase noise microwave Voltage control oscillator MMICs will be developed after the successful demonstration of the proposed effort. TLC will integrate exclusive doping profiles of their patented varactor diode capabilities with their patented VCO MMIC desings on a lattice engineered substrate to develop and deliver a family of single chip VCOs with more than 2 GHz tuning bandwidth, phase noise less than -140dBc/Hz at 100KHz, and output powers greater than 16dBm. The proposal presents a novel method of integrating varactor diode to the VCO MMIC, there by, avoiding time consuming, unreliable, error prone usage of external varactor diodes with VCO MMICs. The proposed VCO is an ideal solution for the future Space Based Radar Constellation application.
