Abstract:

MILLIMETER WAVES ARE AN INTEGRAL PART OF SATELLITE COMMUNICAITONS, ELECTRONIC WARFARE, AND MISSILE RADAR.

SPIRE PROPOSES TO DEVELOP AN INP-BASED HETEROJUNCTION BI-POLAR TRANSISTOR (HBT) TECHNOLOGY FOR THE AMPLIFICAITON OF MILLIMETER WAVES WITH HIGH EFFICIENCY AND RELIABILITY, SPECIFICALLY AT FREQUENCIES OF L40 AND 220 GHZ.
