Abstract: Much of the mystery surrounding monolithically integrated GaAs circuits is gone. The performance o f distributed and o f lumped realizations of conventional circuits has been related to fundamental physical limitations. It is generally accepted that the losses inherent in smaller matching and tuning elements along with the need for acceptable yield for large integrated circuits dictate that monolithic circuits will not be as low noise, efficient, or as powerful as their hybrid counterparts.Recently, unconvent…
