    The three-dimensional (3D) masterslice MMIC technology has, even in the millimeter-wave region, the advantages of high integration levels, simple design procedures, short turn-around-time, and low fabrication cost. Fabricated V-band amplifiers achieve an 8-db gain and a 5.3 dB noise figure in an area of 0.27 mm2. A U-band single-chip downconverter is also demonstrated.
