A hybrid-integrated parametric amplifier has been fabricated in a microstrip transmission-line configuration. General design considerations and their implementation in a microstrip medium are discussed. The amplifier exhibited a power gain of 10 dB and 50-MHz half-power bandwidth with a noise figure of 2.0 dB. It was pumped at X-band frequency and required only 10 mW of pump power. The integrated pump source consisted of the transistor oscillator and a varactor quadrupler stage.
