On-chip millimeter wave antennas and transceivers
The main mechanisms responsible for performance degradation of millimeter wave (mmWave) and terahertz (THz) on-chip antennas are reviewed. Several techniques to improve the performance of the antennas and several high efficiency antenna types are presented. In order to illustrate the effects of the chip topology on the antenna, simulations and measurements of mmWave and THz on-chip antennas are shown. Finally, different transceiver architectures are explored with emphasis on the challenges faced in a wireless multi-core environment.
