Paper Abstract

Recent millimeter-wave three-terminal semiconductor device performance improvement enables monolithic millimeter-wave integrated circuits to be a viable option for many applications through 100 GHz. The low cost of the MMIC circuits, a result of circuit design and fabrication technique improvements, provides a path to low cost millimeter-wave systems for new commercial and military applications. Key technical advances that make the fabrication of high-performance monolithic millimeter-wave integrated circuits possible will be described. System applications and the present state of the art in monolithic millimeter-wave integrated circuits will also be discussed.
