Silicon millimeter-wave radio circuits at 60-100 GHz (invited)

View publication


This paper reviews silicon millimeter-wave radio circuits operating between 60 and 100GHz. Transmitter and receiver chips operating in the 60-GHz ISM band are highlighted, where the packaged chipset has shown data rates as high as 2 Gb/s over 5m for a wireless high-definition video link. In addition, a 60GHz PA with 23dBm output power and a class-E 60GHz PA with >20% peak PAE are reviewed. Finally, 77 and 94GHz downconverters are presented as a basis for an outlook to the performance achievable at these higher frequency bands. © 2007 IEEE.
