What is MMIC (Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit)?

Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit works at microwave frequencies of range from 300 MHz to 300 GHz. These devices execute functions, for example, microwave mixing, power amplification, low-noise amplification, and high-frequency switching. These were initially created utilizing gallium arsenide (GaAs), an III-V compound semiconductor. MMICs utilized metal-semiconductor field-effect transistors (MESFETs) as the active device. A new metallized multilayer ceramic package has been created to decrease electromagnetic induction.
