The distributed, or wideband, amplifier is a unique circuit in the field of high frequency microwave engineering. Its architecture can often be misunderstood, however, and this confusion can sometimes result in a non-optimal use of the amplifier.Why use GaAs?

The FET is built on top of a semi-insulating substrate, most often GaAs. When we say "semi-insulating" this is perhaps misleading. In its pure form, GaAs is remarkable insulator, which is what makes monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs) practical.
