MMIC Technologies: Integrated Passive Devices (IPD)

Radha Setty, Technical Advisor Introduction Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuits (MMICs) with no active elements such as transistors, and containing only passive elements such as resistors, capacitors, inductors, are referred to as Integrated Passive Devices...

A Primer on RF Semiconductors (MMICs)

Radhakrishna Setty, Technical Advisor Introduction Semiconductors are ubiquitous in modern society. In addition to microprocessors for computing technologies, they are used in practically every active wireless communications system including cell phone towers, cell...

RF Transformers

RF transformers are widely used in low-power electronic circuits for impedance matching to achieve maximum power transfer, for voltage step-up or step-down, and for isolating DC from two circuits while maintaining ac continuity. They are also used for common mode...
