The millimeter-wave spectrum, generally considered to range from 30 to 300 GHz, is one of the most actively used spectrums today, with applications such as high-data-rate terrestrial and space communications, radar, and electronic warfare. The helix traveling-wave tube (TWT) amplifier has long been a critical component for enabling modern millimeter-wave systems. This paper presents an overview of several recently developed high-power millimeter-wave helix TWTs which have extended the helix TWT… CONTINUE READING
