Abstract
Although the application of millimeter wave technology offers a number of commonly known advantages /1/, wide spread application has long been hampered due to cost. Since the early 70's worldwide research and development efforts are ongoing. Today, the available component technology, e.g. planar technology for hybrid and monolithic integration or quasi-optic technologies /2/, has already fostered the spreading application of millimeter-wave systems in various, mostly commercial, employment areas. Ease of fabrication and the capability to integrate a wide range of circuit functions are of prime importance. The advantages and the disadvantages of different technologies are surveyed, compared and evaluated.
