Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In order to meet the requirements for higher data transfer rate in modern wireless communication systems, radio frequency frontends need higher working frequency, wider bandwidth, and better linearity. Monolithic microwave-integrated circuits (MMICs) are important ways to realize high-frequency microwave circuits, especially millimeter-wave circuits, and they have come a long way thanks to the efforts of scientific researchers. However, the performance of MMICs still has a lot of room for improvement due to many factors. This will be important in determining how much progress next-generation wireless communication systems can achieve.

The aim of this Special Issue is to attract reviews and original research outcomes related to new technologies in MMICs to improve their performance. They can be new circuit architectures, new design methodologies, new transistor structures, new materials, or any technology that can help circuits to perform better.

The topics of interest for this Special Issue include but are not limited to:

  • High-performance MMICs
  • Circuit architectures for integrated microwave circuits
  • Design methodologies of microwave networks
  • Next-generation transistors
  • MMICs using new materials
  • New types of devices in RF frontends

The development of mobile 5G technology poses new challenges for high-frequency and high-performance filters. However, current commercial acoustic wave filters mainly focus on 4G LTE, which operates below 3 GHz. It is necessary to accelerate research on high-frequency acoustic wave filters.

The development of mobile 5G technology poses new challenges for high-frequency and high-performance filters. However, current commercial acoustic wave filters mainly focus on 4G LTE, which operates below 3 GHz. It is necessary to accelerate research on high-frequency acoustic wave filters. A high-selectivity film bulk acoustic resonator (FBAR) filter chip for the 3.4–3.6 GHz range was designed and fabricated in this paper. The design procedure includes FBAR parameter fitting, filter schematic analysis, and the generation principle of transmission zeros (TZs). The measured results show that the filter chip is of high roll-off and stopband suppression. Most of the stopband suppression is better than 35 dB. Finally, error analysis was conducted, and FBAR parameters were modified after testing for future filter design work. Full article
