A study on the impact of the variation of the technology process parameters on the performance of a 40 GHz MMIC traveling-wave amplifier is proposed. In particular, the behavior of the output power as a function of the controllable parameters of the technology process, such as gate length, doping of the active zone, height, and dielectric constant of the substrate, is investigated. The comprehension of the contribution of the various process parameters to the final performance of a wideband traveling-wave amplifier and their possible tuning are important factors to attain the design requirements.
