New technologies

Hi guys,

Let's talk about new technologies for designing RF circuits.

Will GaAs continue to be the paradigm at tens of GHz? Wouldn't be possible for advanced CMOS to reach and win some of those markets? What will be the price to pay?

CMOS can reach higher than 10 GHz but the price will be higher than GaAs. At very high frequency like 90 GHz, InP is better performance wise but substrate is thinner, and thus more difficult to handle.
