Recent Trend of On-wafer Measurement at Millimeter-wave Frequency
Organizer / Chair :  Masahiro Horibe (AIST)
With the progress of research and development and commercialization of millimeter wave automotive radar, 5G and 6G, modeling of devices based on measurement results is mainstream in system design. However, in the on-wafer measurement in the millimeter wave band, the measurement results are largely different depending on the measurement repeatability and the type of the RF probe design. This causes problems in device development and system development, and the development of new technologies is indispensable as a solution.
In this session, the latest technologies are introduced in addition to the basics of on-wafer measurement.
