Novel three-dimensional structures for passive elements--inductors, capacitors, transmission lines, and airbridges--have been developed to reduce the area they consume in GaAs MMICs. These structures can be formed with a simple technology by electroplating along the sidewalls of a photoresist. Adopting the new structures, most passive elements in MMICs have been shrunk to less than 1/4 the size of conventional ones.
