Hand-held radios and wireless telecommunication systems will represent in the near future a high volume market. How GaAs can become a key technology for this application and how to leverage the expertise that can be obtained from silicon processing are discussed. The enabling factors of these emerging applications are cost, size, weight, features, and high operating frequency. GaAs and silicon process technologies are compared. The transfer of silicon process and manufacturing technology to GaAs is considered. GaAs monolithic microwave integrated circuits are discussed.
