Abstract:

The Microwave and Millimeter Wave Monolithic Integrated Circuits MIMIC program, sponsored by the United States Department of Defense DoD, provides the resources and structure that will make it possible to transition the results of many years of productive research and development in gallium arsenide technology into a manufacturable production process. This will allow the efficient and affordable manufacture of monolithic format, microwave and millimeter wave frequency integrated circuits needed for a wide variety of applications. Profitable production of these circuits will allow a self- sustaining business base to be established and assure the future availability of these circuits. This paper describes the objectives that must be met for this effort to be a success, reviews the progress to date on the program and discuss future planned activities.
