Abstract:

This final report describes the work performed under ONR Contract NO. N00014-78-C-0624. The goal of the program was to develop GaAs monolithic microwave integrated circuitry MMICs for an 8 GHz superheterodyne receiver front end. The MMIC designs are based on microstrip circuitry fabricated on semi-insulating GaAs substrates with resistivity as high as 10 to the 9th power ohmssq cm. single and two stage low noise amplifiers were successfully developed. An IF ampmlifler design was successful, initial results were also obtained on a monolithic mixer and voltage controlled oscillator.
