A new mm-wave IC, constructed by flip-chip bonded heterojunction transistors and microstrip lines formed on Si substrate, has been proposed and demonstrated by using MBB (micro bump boding) technology. Millimeter-wave characteristics of the MBB region has been estimated by electro-magnetic field analysis. Good agreements between calculated and measured characteristics of this new IC (named MFIC: millimeter-wave flip-chip IC) have been obtained up to 60 GHz band. Several MFIC amplifiers with their designed performances have been successfully fabricated.
