WIN Semiconductors Releases Subsequent Technology mmWave Enhancement/Depletion GaAs Expertise

Posted Date: 2023-06-14

Tao Yuan, Taiwan – June 13, 2023: WIN Semiconductors Corp (TPEx:3105), the world’s largest pure-play compound semiconductor foundry, pronounces the business launch of its subsequent era built-in mmWave GaAs platform, PQG3-0C. Concentrating on mmWave entrance ends, the PQG3-0C expertise combines individually optimized E-mode low noise and D-mode energy pHEMTs to allow best-in-class PA and LNA efficiency on the identical chip. The E-mode/D-mode pHEMTs have ƒt of 110GHz and 90GHz respectively, and each make use of 0.15µm T-shaped gates fabricated by deep ultraviolet stepper expertise. Deep UV photolithography is a confirmed, excessive quantity manufacturing method for brief gate size gadgets and eliminates the throughput constraints of conventional electron-beam patterning. Providing two application-specific mmWave transistors with RF switches and ESD safety diodes, PQG3-0C helps a variety of front-end capabilities with elevated on-chip performance.

Each E-mode and D-mode transistors can be utilized for mmWave amplification and function at 4V. The D-mode pHEMT targets energy amplifiers and supplies over 0.6 watt/mm with 11dB linear acquire and near 50% energy added effectivity when measured at 29GHz. The E-mode pHEMT operates finest as a single provide LNA and delivers minimal noise determine beneath 0.7dB at 30GHz with 8dB related acquire, and third order output intercept (OIP3) of 26dBm.

The PQG3-0C platform is manufactured on 150mm GaAs substrates and supplies two interconnect metallic layers with low-k dielectric crossovers, PN-junction diodes for compact ESD safety circuits, and RF change transistors. With a ultimate chip thickness of 100µm, a bottom floor airplane with through-wafer-vias (TWV) are commonplace and might be configured as through-chip RF transitions to eradicate the hostile affect of bond wires at millimeter wave frequencies. PQG3-0C additionally helps flip-chip packaging and might be delivered with Cu-pillar bumps fabricated in WIN’s inner bumping line.
