HMC-ALH509- Vacuum and Plasma?

Can we do any Plasma cleaning on the HMC-ALH509? Can we place it under vacuum?

On unrelated note, why is there an air-bridge on the device?

Which manufacture of Alumina did you use for characterization?

    Hello,

    The HMC-ALH509 can be plasma cleaned.  The air bridges are part of the GaAs HEMT fabrication process.  When you ask about vacuum, are you referring to picking the die with a vacuum tip?  The air-bridges are fairly robust but can be damaged if not vacuum picked properly.  With proper technique and care the die can be vacuum picked.

    regards,
