We propose a new distributed amplifier design using a transmission-gate FET (TGFET) whose gate is embedded in the gate-artificial line. The new technique greatly simplifies the gate-artificial-line design, with no meandering or T-junction lines. The test TGFET distributed amplifier, using 0.1-μm-gate-length InP HEMT's showed a promising bandwidth performance of 100 GHz.
