                                              Working Strategy

           • Each Sub-Group generates own table

           • Based on application spectrum divided in 3 bands
             (1) 1 - 10 GHz (PA, RF Transc., A/MS)
             (2) 11 - 30 GHz
             (3) 31 - 100 GHz (mm-Wave)
             ( 11 - 30 GHz after completion of the other two bands)

           • Tables include candidate technologies
             Si CMOS, SiGe HBT, Si LDMOS, GaAs, InP, SiC, GaN
             and Device structures
             MOSFET, MESFET, HEMT, HBT, LDMOS

           • Write a chapter of PIDS comparable in size and content
             to the ERD chapter in 2001
