Abstract: High-performance microwave and radio frequency integrated circuits are of interest to the Army. Several monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs) were designed to enhance the performance of commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) RF integrated circuits (RFICs) used in many wireless systems. This report is a summary of the steps and documentation delivered to TriQuint for their Prototype Development Quickturn (PDQ) Option for a set of MMIC designs fabricated for the U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL). This is an optimized set of designs based on some previous work. In this design submission, there are 10 separate MMIC designs on the 5 x 10 mm quarter tile.
