Mounting of Microwave Devices
The FBH mounts single GaN-microwave transistors with powers up to 100 W as well as MMICs (up to the mm-wavelength range) which have been processed in-house. The devices are characterized, aged, and delivered to cooperating partners.
Challenges in the assembly of these devices consist in:
- Thermal management in power components (ensuring of a low thermal resistance)
- Packaging for high powers and high frequencies simultaneously (handling of high currents, avoiding of parasitic effects)
- Electrical stability (oscillation free)
- Wire bonding with high current load of the bonds
