A new embedded transmission-line (ETL) monolithic-microwave integrated-circuit (MMIC) approach which allows flexibility in mixing different transmission-line types (i.e., coplanar and striplines) for maximum MMIC design flexibility and permits the feasibility of eliminating backside processing for low production cost is described. This ETL MMIC approach is an enabling technology allowing for low-cost batch fabrication, and high-density integration of microwave and RF components (including silicon mixed-signal products) for emerging wireless communication applications. Designs and performance results of a number of ETL MMICs are described in this paper
