The integration of RF/microwave functionality in highly integrated front-end modules paves the way for smaller, lower-power, cost-effective IoT solutions for a wide range of applications.
The electrical and mechanical design approaches taken with high-power RF/microwave amplifiers depend on whether they are intended for pulsed or CW applications.
Silicon is not often associated with millimeter-wave frequencies, but these switches operate to 60 GHz thanks to an advanced silicon CMOS semiconductor process.

A 3.3-b phase shifter combines micromachined waveguide and MEMS chips to achieve 10 phase states from 0 to 90 deg. at frequencies from 500 to 550 GHz.
The same wafers used for MEMS components were the basis for near-THz microstrip transmission lines with low loss.
