Abstract (en)

The active coplanar high frequency coupler has FET transistors with metallic grid electrodes of the source and drain (3,4,5) combined to form input and output coupling access. The access assembly is formed using coplanar strip structure and coplanar waveguide structure, with the input and output structure being different.

Abstract (fr)

Coupleur hyperfréquence coplanaire, actif et équilibré pour circuit intégré monolithique MMIC, comportant des transistors FET dotés d'électrodes métalliques de grille, de source et de drain intégrées à des éléments métalliques plans coplanaires (3, 4, 4',4", 5, 5') combinés pour constituer les accès d'entrée et de sortie du coupleur. L'ensemble de ces accès est constitué par une association comprenant une ou des lignes à rubans coplanaires CPS et un ou des guides d'onde coplanaires CPW. <IMAGE>
