Harmonic distortion (HD) is measured arising from coplanar waveguide structures on various substrates at 900 MHz, and significant distortion for silicon substrates is demonstrated for the first time. For an input power of +35 dBm, 2<sup>nd</sup> harmonic power of -47 dBm and 3<sup>rd</sup> of -57 dBm are measured for a thru calibration structure on oxidized(More)
Non-linear behaviour of RF coplanar transmission lines is analyzed for various values of Si substrate resistivitiy. Based on small-signal measurements performed under different DC bias conditions, voltage dependent capacitance and conductance per unit length of the transmission line are extracted and compared for several silicon substrates. Harmonic(More)
Substrate crosstalk and RF losses in HR-SOI, and the introduction of a stabilized polysilicon layer are deeply investigated. A new equivalent lumped circuit to model different substrate types and resistivities, and SiO<sub>2</sub>-Si interface qualities is proposed and validated by simulation and experimental data. It is also valid to model the introduction(More)
