Abstract : The purpose of the present contract is to develop a small, efficient and simple X-band solid-state signal source. The approach to the source is presented with emphasis on necessary areas of device development. A general discussion is given of the philosophies and technological limitations that affect high frequency power transistor design. The prototype device design is discussed along with results of the first several runs. These results were successful. Almost all units which pass the dc classification test deliver 1 watt at 1 Gc with an oscillator efficiency ranging from 40-62%. (Author)
