Abstract
An array suitable for millimeter wave radar application is proposed for development. The switch array will utilize planar field emitter array devices in the triode format. The main objective of Phase I is to demonstrate a new microwave and mm-wave switching device based on work performed by SSI Diamond Technology Inc. The new switching device is expected to provide performance superior than that offered by MESFET and PIN diodes combined. The switch array will utilize Diamond cold cathode switches which have been primarily being used for large flat panel displays. This effort will bring the technology into the high frequency arena where it is expected to outperform the solid state devices.
