The need of high data rate can be satisfied only by wide frequency bands in the millimetre wave region. This paper presents the design of a G-band (215 – 250 GHz) Traveling Wave Tube with 40 dB gain for wireless communications, based on the double corrugated waveguide. The structure of the TWT is based on a single section, instead of the typical configuration of two sections with a sever used at microwave frequency. This is possible due to the high losses at those frequency that permit a stable behaviour. This paper reports both cold and hot simulations.
