Parasitics associated with transistors and on-chip passive components, such as inductors and capacitors, as well as the package, limit the performance of RF integrated circuits. Modifications to the IC fabrication process, special packaging techniques, and the use of off-chip components improve RFIC performance at the expense of cost and size of the final… CONTINUE READING
