Abstract : Microwave integrated circuits (MICs) have been under wide investigation and are presently being applied in all segments of the microwave and semiconductor industry. One goal of this investigation was to determine the role of lumped-element circuits as opposed to distributed circuits in the development of MIC technology. Of particular interest were (1) the frequency limitations and (2) power limitations. An additional goal was to investigate the use of MICs at the millimeter-wave frequencies. Studies of novel transmission lines and monolithic GaAs technology for high-frequency MICs were therefore initiated. This report reviews materials and technology for MICs and lumped elements, and describes measurement techniques developed for evaluation of elements, circuits, and materials. Many circuits, both passive and active, were constructed and evaluated. Both lumped and distributed circuits were tested on alumina, sapphire, and GaAs, making use of the technology developed.
