Transistors fabricated in the Indium Phosphide (InP) material systems have proven capable of reaching fMAX greater than 1 THz. This talk describes InP HEMT capabilities at Northrop Grumman. The talk starts with a technology overview, and then describes different applications at submillimeter and THz frequencies. The talk completes with an overview of MMIC, component and sub-system results at these frequencies.
