In this letter we study the wave propagation in a diode-equipped microstrip line and show that soliton generation at microwave frequencies is possible with monolithic fabrications of such nonlinear transmission lines. We propose that this phenomenon be utilized as a new method of obtaining ultrashort electrical pulses with picosecond durations. The perdicted soliton generation has been confirmed by computer simulations based on the harmonic balance method.
