A 315-GHz reflection-type push-push oscillator is presented. It is realized using a 0.8 µm-emitter transferred-substrate (TS) InP-DHBT technology with an fmax of 320 GHz. The oscillator delivers -10 dBm output power. DC consumption is only 21 mW from a 1.6 volts power supply, which corresponds to 0.5 % overall DC-to-RF efficiency.
