Spotlight On RFICs And MMICs
Reliability Of GaN/AlGaN HEMT MMIC Technology On 100-mm 4H-SiC
White Paper | By Donald A. Gajewski, et al., Wolfspeed, A Cree Company

This paper reports the reliability performance of the Cree, Inc., GaN/AlGaN HEMT MMIC process technology, fabricated on 100-mm, high-purity, semi-insulating (HPSI) 4H-SiC substrates.

When Should A Design Use Custom MMICs
Article | NuWaves Engineering

There are many challenges associated with improving the size, weight, and power (SWaP) of electronic devices, including the limitation of the physical size and assembly processes and spectrum congestion forcing new systems to move to higher frequencies.

AlGaAs PIN Diode MMICs: Frequency And Power Capability
Article | By Timothy Boles, MACOM

Monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs) based on high-power PIN diodes are increasingly used for many transmit/receive systems in advanced defense electronics and telecommunications applications.

Power Supply Management Of GaN MMIC Power Amplifiers For Pulsed Radar
White Paper | By David Bennett and Richard DiAngelo, Analog Devices, Inc.

Today’s management systems must be extremely flexible, reusable, and easily adaptable to various RF amplifier architectures. Their enclosed RF amplifier MMICs are expensive, and, as a result, the performance and temperatures of these systems must be monitored in real time.

How To Verify Beamformer ICs For Phased Array Antennas
White Paper | Rohde & Schwarz GmbH & Co. KG

Phased array beamforming is becoming a default concept. Integrated RF beamforming ICs include phase and gain adjustment per path as well as amplification capabilities for the TX and RX channels. This article discusses the process of verification for these beamformer ICs for phased array antennas.
