Abstract
Presents the experimental and theoretical findings of a fundamental based waveguide VCO for use in the 26 GHz to 40 GHz range. The VCO uses a double radial line concept to provide state of the art tuning bandwidths in excess of 3 GHz at these frequencies. The report has seen the development of an equivalent circuit representation of the VCO and the development of a software simulation to predict the behaviour of this circuit. The results obtained through use of this simulation are in excellent agreement with those obtained experimentally under the same conditions. The simulation has also verified that the Gunn diode capacitance and resistance exist within a certain known range. However, their exact value must be determined empirically. In general, the simulation package allows for the verification of assumptions made during the development of the equivalent circuit.
