We present the development of a monolithically integrated 557 GHz membrane Schottky diode mixer. RF test shows state-of-the-art performance with an optimum receiver noise temperature below 1300 K DSB and an estimated mixer DSB conversion loss of 9 dB and a mixer DSB noise temperature of 1100 K including all losses.
