A highly integrated frequency quadrupler MMIC that uses three-dimensional MMIC (3D-MMIC) technology is presented. It consists of four driver amplifiers, two doublers, and a 2-band elimination filter. These seven circuits are integrated in only a 2.36 mm^{2} area. The filter sufficiently suppresses spurious output components. The third and fifth harmonic components, which are the spurious components nearest to the desired component, are well suppressed. The desired/undesired ratio is about 40 dB. The driver amplifiers make the quadrupler output a constant power of the desired multiplied signal under low input power. The MMIC supplies +5 dBm of the fourth harmonic component in the input power range from -10 dBm to +5 dBm. The power dissipation of the MMIC is only 160 mW.
