Advances in millimeter wave components have revived research and development in EHF receivers. There are presently two general approaches to fabricate EHF receivers: the crystal video receiver and wide-band channelization. In both approaches, the small size of the receiver is very much emphasized. The miniaturization includes not only the receivers but also the antennas. The advances in MMIC will have a big impact on EHF receiver development. In the future, EHF receivers may be made in integrated circuit forms.
