Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 169)


This Chapter is an introductory review on the contemporary technologies of manufacturing of microwave and millimeter-wave integrated circuits and their packaging. Among them are the RF and microwave laminated printed circuit boards, microwave hybrid integrated circuits, and monolithic integrations. Some attention is paid to 3-D integrations realized by different technologies. This review allows for better understanding the typical geometries of integrated circuits which is important for EM engineers and designers. References -109. Figures -19. Pages -34.
