Abstract: The US Army Research Laboratory is exploring devices and circuits for radio frequency communications, networking, and sensor systems of interest to US Defense Department applications, particularly for next-generation radar systems. Broadband, efficient, high-power, monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) amplifiers are extremely important in any communication system that must operate reliably and efficiently in continually crowded spectrums, with multiple purposes for communications, networking, and radar. This technical note briefly summarizes a few of the MMIC designs using Qorvo's 0.25-μm, high-power, efficient, gallium-nitride-on-4-mil-silicon-carbide process that were submitted to an Air Force Research Laboratory–sponsored wafer fabrication.
