Abstract: The US Army Research Laboratory (ARL) is exploring devices and circuits for radio frequency communications, networking, and sensor systems of interest to Department of Defense applications, particularly for next-generation radar systems. Broadband, efficient, high-power 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 report briefly summarizes several 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.
