The author focuses on finline or E-plane technology. Several examples, including AVES, a 61.5-GHz radar sensor for traffic data acquisition, are included. Monolithic integrated 60- and 94-GHz receiver circuits composed of a mixer and IF amplifier in compatible FET technology on GaAs are presented to show the state of the art in this area. A promising approach to the use of silicon technology for monolithic millimeter-wave integrated circuits, called SIMMWIC, is described as well. As millimeter-wave technology has matured, increased interest has been generated for very specific applications: (1) commercial automotive applications such as intelligent cruise control and enhanced vision have attracted great interest, calling for a low-cost design approach; and (2) an almost classical application of millimeter-wave techniques is the field of radar seekers, e.g. for intelligent ammunitions, calling for high performance under extreme environmental conditions. Two examples fulfilling these requirements are described
