ACST offers a set of frequency doublers and triplers for high power and wide band applications based on our high power Schottky varactor-diodes technology.

Frequency doublers are an efficient option to increase the frequency of a source beyond W-band while maintaining the power level required for a wide range of applications.

 

High Power Doublers

ACST’s high power doublers are able to handle the power provided by most of the E-band and W-band amplifiers available in the market. Frequency doublers is our most efficiently option to provide high power sources width up to 40% efficiency and 180 mW at 170 GHz, and 30% efficiency and 40 mW at 340 GHz without power combining techniques. Power combining technique can increase the offered power in a factor two to four.

Application Areas: Product Features:
– MM-wave FMCW-Radar – High power & Effiency
– Active imaging – Large bandwidth
– LO Source for MM/SubMM wave heterodyne receivers – Flat response
– High-bit rate data transmission systems  

 

Full-Band Doublers

ACST’s full band doublers implement our high power Schottky diodes technology to address the power handling limitations and lead full-band sources to the next level. ACST´s full band doublers can handle any full E-band and W-band amplifier available in the market.

Application Areas: Product Features:
– MM-wave FMCW-Radar – High power & Effiency
– Array Receiver Systems – Large bandwidth
– Active imaging – Flat response
– LO Source for MM/SubMM wave heterodyne receivers  
– High-bit rate data transmission systems  

 


 

Frequency triplers are a fast option to increase the frequency of a source beyond W-band while maintaining the bandwidth required for a wide range of applications.

 

High Efficiency Triplers

ACST’s high power triplers are specially developed to maximize the conversion efficiency to offer a fast way to efficiently increase the frequency of any E-band or W-band source. Frequency tripler with an outstanding conversion efficiency higher than 22% at 210 GHz and 50 mW output power is the prove of ACST’s commitment to our clients. Power combining technique can increase the offered power in a factor two to four.

Application Areas: Product Features:
– MM-wave FMCW-Radar – High power & Effiency
– Active imaging – Large bandwidth
– LO Source for MM/SubMM wave heterodyne receivers – Flat response
– High-bit rate data transmission systems  

 

Full-Band Triplers

ACST’s full band triplers implement our high power Schottky diodes technology to address the power handling limitations and lead full-band sources to the next level. ACST’s full band triplers can handle any full E-band and W-band amplifier available in the market and provide outstanding efficiency up to 10% in our full W-band tripler with up to 9 mW output power.

Application Areas: Product Features:
– MM-wave FMCW-Radar – High efficiency
– Active imaging – Full band
– LO Source for MM/SubMM wave heterodyne receivers – Flat response
– High-bit rate data transmission systems
