Abstract
A 100-200-400µm pHEMT amplifier has been developed for Ka-Band operation. This amplifier has achieved the state-of-the-art efficiency of 40% with 235 mW output power and 20.7 dB gain at 31 GHz. Production of variations of this amplifier in quantity of 100 to 200 has been made possible by the advance of new fabrication techniques such as Reactive Ion Etching (RIE) dry recess with etch-stop layer which insures uniformity across full three-inch wafers. Amplifiers of this type are being used in a prototype phased-array antenna.
