Data is presented concerning the burn-out distribution in time and parameter change of 553 Gunn diodes placed on high temperature dc burn-in. The results of Gunn diode switching transient reliability tests and long term dc burn-in data are also reported. Temperature measurement data on operating gallium arsenide Gunn and IMPATT diodes obtained using an infrared radiometer are presented. Author
