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…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
