In this paper, we demonstrate a packaged sub-millimeter wave solid-state power amplifier (SSPA). The SSPA is implemented in coplanar waveguide (CPW) and uses an advanced high fMAX InP HEMT transistor with a sub 50-nm gate. A monolithically integrated CPW dipole-to-waveguide transition eliminates the need for wirebonding and additional substrates. On-chip compact tandem couplers are used for power combining. The amplifier demonstrates 15-dB small-signal gain at 340 GHz. Peak saturated output power of 10 mW at 338 GHz is obtained at the waveguide flange out-put for the SSPA module.
