Paper Abstract

Advances in microwave and millimeter-wave power monolithic amplifier technology are reviewed. Device structures and circuit topologies that enhance the efficiency of monolithic power amplifiers for space communication applications are discussed. Mature GaAs MESFETs as well as emerging III-V heterostructure field-effect and bipolar transistors designed for high-efficiency operation are covered. Relative merits of various types of devices for implementation in high performance monolithic amplifiers are discussed.
