    Abstract

    A procedure for quickly developing highly integrated multifunctional MMICs by using the three-dimensional masterslice MMIC technology has been developed. The structures and advanced features of this technology, such as miniature transmission lines, a broadside coupler, and miniature function block circuits, enable multifunctional MMICs to be quickly and easily developed. These unique features and basic concept of the masterslice technology are discussed and reviewed to examine the advantages of this technology. As an example of quick MMIC development, an amplifier, a mixer, and a down-converter are fabricated on a newly designed master array.
