Recent advances in pseudomorphic HEMT (PHEMT) MMIC technology have made it the preferred candidate for high performance millimeter-wave components for phased array applications. This paper will describe the development of V-band PHEMT MMIC components including power amplifiers and phase shifters. For the single-stage MMIC power amplifier employing a 200 micrometers PHEMT, we achieved 151.4 mW output power (757.0 mW/mm) with 26.4% power-added efficiency at 60 GHz. A three-stage MMIC amplifier utilizing the same devices demonstrated 80 mW output power, 20.5% power-added efficiency, and 17 dB associated gain at 57 GHz. And, for the phase shifter, a four-bit phase shifter with less than 8 dB insertion loss from 61 to 63 GHz has been achieved.
