An MMIC (Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit) chip can replace an entire amplifier stage that uses the standard hybrid approach with discrete transistors, capacitors and resistors. Size is reduced dramatically, as is manufacturing assembly time. An MMIC Chip is merely mounted to the case housing and small bond wires tie the input and output to the appropriated pins on the devices case. Recent advances in printed circuit technology and especially in packaging technology emerged as a continuously swelling use of Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuits (MMICs) in telecommunication systems. MMICs consist of numerous elements, transmission lines and FETs in a single chip, especially in a gallium arsenide substrate. A diversity of microwave circuits such as mixers, amplifiers, phase shifters, couplers, and others can be combined while the use of MMIC is expanded in several different applications. Due to the tenuous efforts for large-scale integration, significantly reduced size of structures can be fabricated in vast quantities, while more stages and components are implemented.
The driving factor behind the development of this technology has been batch processing, leading to low cost, high performance, small size, and reproducibility similar to that for silicon integrated circuits. Semi-insulating gallium arsenide crystal, gallium arsenide substrates and epitaxial film growth techniques, the development of the gallium arsenide metal-semiconductor field-effect transistor and MESFET computer-aided circuit design have provided additional impetus for this rapid growth in the last several years. Due to its feature of higher density, thousands of devices can easily be fabricated in a single MMIC simultaneously during fabrication that makes lower cost of fabrication. Hence overall MMIC cost is less. The signal delay is minimum due to shorter distances between the components on a MMIC due to this minimal mismatches between the components occur. MMICs (Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit) do not have any wire bond reliability issues. Overall performance of MMIC is compromised as optimal materials cannot be used during manufacturing for each elements individually. Power handling capacity is lower as proper heat transfer materials are not used in the fabrication of MMIC (Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit).
