In this paper a new type of frequency-multiplier from 70 GHz to 210 GHz is presented which combines the advantages of a varactor with symmetrical capacitance-voltage characteristic and the low leakage current of Schottky diodes. The varactor structure consists of two inhomogeneously doped Schottky diodes in anti-serial connection which are quasi-monolithically integrated into a microstrip circuit on quartz. A theoretical description of the Schottky diode tripler is given and first experimental results are presented which show an rf-output power of 2 mW at 210 b GHz.
