    A new MMIC development methodology that combines suitable devices with the 3D/multilayer interconnection process is presented. This approach allows the designer to choose the process so as to realize high performance and low cost. The integration of 0.15-μm pHEMT and 3D interconnection technologies is demonstrated. The slight changes of FET parameter with polyimide layer use can be easily incorporated into MMIC design and development.
