Abstract: 

A highly integrated silicon platform (Hi-Mission) for high frequency applications is introduced. This platform utilizes heterogeneous MCM-D technology with integrated passive devices together with silicon and GaAs MMIC technology developed for the automotive UWB radar (SRR) frequency band from 77 - 81 GHz. Developments are described in the area of MCM-D process development, MMIC, integrated phased array antenna, module design and assembly process development. The demonstrator is composed of two test vehicles designed for conducted and radiated measurements respectively. Test results are presented at the component and module level.
