ABSTRACT
IMPATT diodes have received much attention in the few years. Based on the previous studies, device performance has been improved from year to year. This paper is focused on the Silicon IMPATT diode because of the reliable and more mature technology. The progress of Si IMPATT diodes based on millimeter-wave applications is reviewed. The development of Si IMPATT which includes the structures, design consideration, fabrication process, techniques for improvement on output power and efficiency is made to review in this paper.
