This paper presents and discusses three different low-cost microstrip implementations of Schottky-diode detectors in W Band, based on the use of the Zero Bias Diode (ZBD) from VDI (Virginia Diodes, Charlottesville, VA, USA). Designs are based on a previous work of modeling of the ZBD diode. Designs also feature low-cost, easy-to-use tooling substrates (RT Duroid 5880, 5 mils thickness) and even low-cost discrete SMD components such as SOTA resistances (State Of The Art TM miniaturized surface mount resistors), which are modeled to be used well above commercial frequency margins. Intensive use of 3D EM simulation tools such as HFSS TM is done to support microstrip board modeling. Measurements of the three designs fabricated are compared to simulations and discussed.
