Abstract : The report covers work done on the development of a set of Microwave Integrated-Circuit noise source, suitable to be used in the frequency range of 2 to 12.4 GHz, using a single silicon avalanche diode. Noise theory and experiments to support it are described. Emphasis was put on the frequency band of 8 to 12.4 GHz, where 6 prototypes were evaluated for noise output performance and temperature behavior. (Author)
