MMIC Design Methodologies

Monolithic microwave integrated circuit, or MMIC is an Integrated Circuit (IC) device that operates at Microwave frequencies (300 MHz to 300 GHz). These devices typically perform functions such as High Power Amplifiers (HPA), Low-Noise Amplifiers (LNA) and Single Pole Double Throw (SPDT) Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit (MMIC) Switch. MMICs are dimensionally small (from around 1…
