Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuits

10.1 INTRODUCTION

Now a day any technology is moving towards smaller size, lighter weight, lower cost, and decreased complexity. The field of Microwave technology is also progressing in the direction of Microwave Integrated Circuits (MICs). An MMIC is an integrated circuit mounted on a monolithic substrate that operates at microwave frequencies. Bulky and expensive waveguide and coaxial components can be replaced by this MMIC technology with planar components which are small and inexpensive.

There are two types of MICs. Hybrid Microwave Integrated Circuits (HMIC) are made by placing the discrete components (active and passive) on a circuit board. A Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit (MMIC) ...
