Practical monolithic GaAs IC designs are now being developed. Cost effectiveness has become their goal, rather than feasibility demon stration: a 4.3GHz receiver front end on a 1 by 1.6mm chip, a 30 to 1700MHz low noise amplifier on a 1.1 b y 0.75mm chip, and a 3-stage 8 to 16Ghz power amplifier show three aspects of this development.In the 30 to 1700MHz amplifier, designers have minimized gate periphery on the IC, while achieving a 2.2dB noise figure and good input and output match. This component is practic…
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.
