Abstract:

We are proposing to develop high power, high efficiency Ka-band and W-band amplifiers for future NASA missions. The significance of the innovation primarily lies in two areas: better interconnections to available MMIC and extremely low loss power combiner. The approach uses Nuvotronics unique metal micromachining PolyStrataTM process, used to create suspended recta-coax lines, MMIC sockets, and millimeter-wave (MMW) interconnection circuits with low loss, small size/high density, and durability. During this Phase I project, we wil design two circuits at Ka and W-band using commercial of the shelf power amplifer MMICs to achieve the goal of 10 Watts (Ka) and 2 watts (W) output power with 20% efficiency.
