What is RFIC - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

RFIC --> RF design using integrated circuit (IC) technologies.

Thus, I would think you should know something about the process technology you will be designing in (CMOS, SiGeCMOS, GaAs) and its associated advantages/disadvantages. Also, one should probably study up on realizing distributed components in ICs. By this I mean how to realize such things as a Wilkinson power divider using integrated lumped elements and spiral inductors using active devices.

If you have an interview to be an RFIC designger and do not even know what the acronym means then you are in trouble.
