Magnetron / Klystron / TWT
Esaki diode (tunnel diode)
Fractional N synthesiser.
For $US35.70/1 on stock you can gete 1 GHZ fxo modules from Digikey here for prices.
FXO-PC73 series. Up to 1.35 MHz. Multiply in various ways from there.
Datasheet here They say:
- EXTREMELY Low Jitter
- Low Cost
- Frequency Resolution to six decimal places
- Stabilities to ± 20 PPM
- -20 to +70°C or -40 to +85°C operating temperatures
- Serial ID with Comprehensive Traceability
For $5/1 you can buy synthesiser ICs that cover your range.
Typical example only
Datasheet TI LMX2434
Gunn diode oscialltyors using cavities for fequency tuning and with varactors for tuning are a time honoured solution and may give you power levels that can be used directly.
more intro - good
ZAX Gunn oscillators
Zax catalog - very pretty
Gunn XBan - well above your range useful
Ham Radio mag 1980 DIY 10 GHz - very relevant if DIYing here
