2020 Extra Class study guide – E6E Analog ICs: MMICs, IC packaging characteristics

Monolithic microwave integrated circuits, or MMICs, are ICs that are made to perform various functions at high frequencies. MMICs have: Controlled gain. Low noise figure (VHF and UHF preamplifiers have a noise figure typically 2 dB or less). Constant input and output impedance (50 Ω, of course, for RF circuits) over the specified frequency range. These features make them a popular choice for high-frequency circuits, from VHF through microwave. QUESTION: What characteristics of the MMIC make it...
