The power, efficiency and operating frequency specifications can be met over a wide range of breakdown voltage IMPATT diodes. The AM noise figure appears to be the most critical diode specification and the higher breakdown voltage diodes appear to give superior performance. Diode reliability for the IMPATT diodes is a serious problem and degradation with subsequent failure is the norm. A prototype oscillator was assembled. This oscillator met power output, electronic tuning, frequency pulling and pushing and power pushing. The oscillator failed to meet the specifications of AM noise and power pulling.
