In this work, a short wavelength microstrip line employing periodically arrayed capacitive elements (PACE) on GaAs monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) was developed for application to miniaturized on-chip passive components. The microstrip line employing PACE showed a wavelength much shorter than conventional transmission line. Concretely, the(More)
In this work, spiral inductor structures employing SiN film were fabricated on GaAs substrate for a suppression of LO and its second harmonic leakage signals. Concretely, they were properly designed so that the self-resonance frequency was accurately tuned to LO and its second harmonic frequency, and they were integrated on the downconverter MMIC.
