The European position in GaAs based power MMICs is lagging some way behind that of the Japanese and Americans. The MANPOWER has the objective of redressing the balance and to put European Industry in a position where it can compete in this market.
This programme brings together the major GaAs MMIC manufacturers with key users and academic institutions. It will address the two sections which are urgently needed to bring the European Industry at a competition level in the market of power components:
• definition and validation of the key technologies for power components based on MESFET, HEMT and HBT.
• development and control of the manufacturability of power technologies aiming at the implementation of the industrial tools for mass production of low cost power components.
