Abstract : A dual GUNN self-oscillating mixer is shown which can mix signals in the VHF range substantially without handling capacity and with higher input mixed signal power than conventional, owing to boosted power from more than one microwave cavity. The device is comprised of two cavities and connected by a 180 deg phase shift coax line for injection locking, or a cavity wall hole in yet another embodiment. The device handles larger power levels without burning out as compared to conventional type mixer devices such as Schottky barrier diodes having nearly 30 times the burnout susceptibility. (Author)
