    Due to the enormous advances made in semiconductor technology over the last few years, high integration densities with moderate costs are achievable even in the millimeter-wave (mm-wave) range and beyond, which encourage the development of imaging systems with a high number of channels. The mm-wave range lies between 30 and 300 GHz, with corresponding wavelengths between 10 and 1 mm. While imaging... View full abstract»

    Gallium nitride (GaN) technology is transforming RF monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs) for power amplifiers (PAs), switches, low noise amplifiers, and more. Vendors are now producing GaN MMICs in volume and achieving outstanding performance. GaNs characteristics enable PA MMICs with 35 times the output power of GaAs alternatives or much smaller die sizes from L-band through Ka-band. ... View full abstract»

    A 120-GHz-band 10-Gb/s wireless link using an InP-HEMT-based MMIC was introduced. This link is suitable for last-mile access of 10GbE, live-relay transmission for 4K cinema, and multiplexed HD videos. The transmitter and receiver MMICs were developed to extend the link distance while maintaining the capacity of 10 Gb/s. The 120-GHz wireless link using the MMICs successfully demonstrated wireless t... View full abstract»

    The second and third generation of MEMS oscillators will target a larger market for compact oscillators in order to meet TCXO and OCXO performance requirements. While silicon-based timing devices are still not as capable as crystal oscillators of undertaking sophisticated tasks , they are getting better, and will eventually replace crystals in many contexts. That will produce further synergies for... View full abstract»
