Microwave and MM Wave Technologies

10.1 Introduction

The communication and radar industries in microwave and mm wave frequencies are continuously growing. Radio frequency (RF) modules such as front end, filters, power amplifiers, antennas, passive components, and limiters are important modules in radar and communication links (see Refs. [1–9]). Microwave and mm wave technologies include

  • Microwave integrated circuits (MICs)
  • Monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs)
  • Micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMSs)
  • Low-temperature co-fired ceramics (LTCCs)

The electrical performance of the modules determines if the system will meet the required specifications. Moreover, in several cases the module’s performance limits the system performance. ...
