Air Bridge Based Planar Hybrid Technology for Microwave and Millimeterwave Applications

A new silicon based, planar hybrid technology is being developed to address limitations associated with packaging and interconnections. The approach combines the advantages of both hybrid and monolithic technologies. Microwave transistor chips (e.g. GaAs FETs) are glued with an epoxy resin in openings micromachined in a high resistivity silicon substrate… CONTINUE READING
