Millimeter wave sensors and subsystems used in applications such as smart weapon systems, space communication systems, and avionics systems will be obvious benefactors of the new MAFET chips and assembly processes, added Bock.
The MAFET program builds on the success of the MIMIC program, which began in 1987.
According to Bock, TRW's MAFET chip-development efforts will focus on compact and extremely thin (.
One objective of the MAFET program is to develop a comprehensive environment for low cost, rapid design of mm-wave and microwave circuit assemblies (MCA) and related technology.
The result is that MAFET GaAs ICs can be produced at costs that rival those of bipolar complementary metal-oxide semiconductors (BiCMOS).
