Abstract : This report describes the Production Engineering of S, X, and Ku-band silicon Schottky barrier mixer diodes. Low barrier, high burnout and high sensitivity Schottky diodes have been developed for broadband applications. Titanium on n-type silicon forms the metal semiconductor barrier. These diodes simulate the microwave characteristics of conventional 1N21, 1N23 and 1N78 point contact diodes and are directly replaceable in existing standard mixers. A pilot line was established to fabricate the diodes for reliability testing and to supply the U.S. Army with 145 diodes of each type. Laboratory pulse burnout experiments are reported. (Author)
