A spatial power combining structure capable of integrating many three terminal devices into a two-dimensional structure is described. The combiners designed and fabricated using this structure do not suffer from multimoding problems. Effective isotropic radiated powers of 5.54 W and 17.38 W at 10.03 GHz were obtained from an eight- and a sixteen-MESFET combiner, respectively. These combiners are suitable for monolithic circuit implementation.<<ETX>>
