The ever expanding need for higher data rates is accelerating the development of fifth generation (5G) cellular systems, mm-wave backhaul microwave links, and ultra-wide band highly integrated circuits. Concurrently, commercial and military applications are seeking the replacement of discrete hybrid solutions with monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMIC) to increase performance and reduce size, weight, power, and cost (so called SWaP-C). The development cycle of MMICs in III-V semiconductors (e.g. GaAs, GaN, and InP) is costly and time consuming. However, a successful design can dramatically reduce the cost/unit, increase performance, and extend the reliability of the entire system. In this webinar, we will review the cost drivers in the MMIC development cycle, the expected cost/unit, critical active/passive modeling techniques, estimation of MMIC lifetime, and instability suppression.
