High Power Pulsed IMPATT diodes are now being fabricated with Integrated Beam Lead Structure for top electrical contact inside diode package to obtain higher output power, greater bondability and better Thermal Dissipation. Relatively lower package Impedance of Beam lead structure ensures better device circuit interaction. The authors have introduced a novel analytical method based on HFSS software to predict the value of Package Impedance of a Beam Lead Structure as well as its dependence on dimensional parameters.
