The Si monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMIC) with high-performance Si devices or on-chip inductors are limited to the X-band operation due to low resistivity of the silicon substrate with resulting high transmission loss. This K-band Si MMICs uses 3D Masterslice MMIC technology that provides a separation between passive circuits and the low-resistivity Si substrate that results in low-loss transmission lines with loss competitive with that of coplanar waveguides formed on a GaAs substrate. The Masterslice Si MMIC that is the same as those demonstrated using the GaAs substrate reduces turn-around-time (TAT) and fabrication cost.
