Summary: 
Monolithic gyrators are proposed on the basis of integrating resonant tunneling diodes (RTDs) and HEMT toward realization of broadband and high-Q passives. Feasibility of millimeter-wave active inductors using the gyrator are described with equivalent circuit analysis and numerical calculations assuming InP based RTDs and a HEMT to be integrated.
