    A novel passive circuit technology of a three-dimensional (3D) metal-insulator structure has been developed for ultra-compact MMICs. By combining vertical passive elements, such as a wall-like microwire for shielding or coupling and a pillar-like via connection, with multilayer passive circuits, highly dense and more functional MMICs can be implemented.
