Macroelectronic circuits made on substrates of glass or plastic could one day make computing devices ubiquitous owing to their light weight, flexibility and low cost. But these substrates deform at high temperatures so, until now, only semiconductors such as organics and amorphous silicon could be used, leading to poor performance. Here we present the use(More)
We study and present design guidelines for thru-reflect-line vector-network-analyzer calibration kits used for characterizing circuits and transistors fabricated on silicon integrated circuits at millimeter-wave frequencies. We compare contact-pad designs and develop fixed-fill contacts that achieve both repeatable and low contact-pad capacitances. We(More)
This paper compares on-wafer thru-reflect-line (TRL) and off-wafer short-open-load-thru (SOLT) and line-reflect-reflect-match (LRRM) vector-network-analyzer probe-tip calibrations for amplifier characterization and parasitic-extraction calibrations for transistor characterization on silicon integrated circuits at millimeter-wave frequencies. We show that(More)
The authors of this paper argue that systems with increased functionality may be achieved by using patterning technologies that enable direct writing on CMOS wafers. ABSTRACT | In this paper, we present a vision for the cointegration of deeply scaled complementary metal–oxide– semiconductor (CMOS) and emerging nanoelectronic devices into CMOS-hybrid(More)
In this paper we report on a resonant wireless power delivery system using magnetoquasistatic fields. The system consists of a source coil impedance matched to a function generator using a resonant circuit and one or more repeater, or relay, resonant tanks that couple energy from source coil to loads distributed in the system. We experimentally map the(More)
