A complex wideband transmit/receive module that achieves performance levels superior to any MMIC module is described. Peak performance within the octave 3.0 to 6.0 GHz band includes a power output of 21 W at S-band and 19 W at C-band, a noise figure of 3.9 to 5.0 dB, 30 to 38 dB of receive gain, 25 to 26 dBm output IP3, 40 dB of gain control in 256 steps, dual receive channels with independent amplitude and phase control, and an 8-bit phase shifter with less than 1 degree calibrated RMS phase error. Total GaAs area is 146 mm2 with 170 mm of total gate periphery. The module incorporates a compact digital interface, requires only three supply voltages, and utilizes advanced packaging techniques, resulting in a size compatible with a grating lobe free grid spacing
