This paper describes properties of planar W-band IMPATT oscillator, their integration into SIMMWICs and proves their basics functionality as mW power sources for simple cost effective and flexible mm-wave systems. In this oscillator system monolithic integrated IMPATT diodes are combined with coplanar waveguide resonator on unthinned silicon wafers for mm-wave operation (around 90GHz). And a CPW (coplanar waveguide)-SLOT antenna that is processed of HR (200micrometer high resister Si-wafer) will be presented. This antenna can be integrated with planar W-band IMPATT oscillator as a W-Band Transmitter.
