Development and Space Application of High-Functional Integrated Circuitry Using Compound Semiconductors
Compound semiconductors can realize high-performance devices and circuits. Using compound semiconductor monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) technology, a prototype of a frequency converter was fabricated and a high-functional IC called the HySIC RF-Mixed Signal IC is being proposed. It is expected that these technologies will soon be applied to both commercial and space fields, including the realization of small, lightweight satellites, in-satellite wireless communication, etc.
