In this paper, we look at different possibilities and advantages of our early proposed hybrid planar and nonradiative dielectric (NRD) guide technology in the design of various millimeter-wave circuits. First of all, an overview of the NRD guide technology progress is presented. It indicates that the hybrid planar/NRD-guide (HP/NRDG) technology provides a straightforward assembly of MMIC circuits with NRD-guide. To begin with, a simple fabrication technique for NRD-guide is described, which allows the fabrication of complex NRD circuits in a single step. Then, a new magic tee junction based on HP/NRDG technology is presented with measured results. New mode suppressor topologies compatible with the HP/NRDG technology are discussed for spurious waveguide modes, the LSE10 mode and also the LSM10 mode. Finally a discussion is made on different design possibilities of HP/NRDG power amplifier topologies. The present overview of some of our ongoing research work on the HP/NRDG technology suggests that the realization of a low-cost millimeter-wave transceiver is possible
