Abstract: THE RAPIDLY DEVELOPING monolithic GaAs technology is expected t o have a major impact on radar and communications systems. Specifically, high volume production offers thc possibility of achieving low cost receivers and transmitters. This paper will describe the fabrication technology of monolithic heterodyne receivers for millimetcr-wave frequencies.Two types of receiver designs available for monolithic integration are the linear amplifier front end and mixer-IF amplifier front end. At microwave frequencies (…
