A 43-GHz wireless inter-chip data link including antennas, transmitters, and receivers is presented. The industry standard bonding wires are exploited to provide high efficiency and low-cost antennas. This type of antennas can provide an efficient horizontal communication which is hard to achieve using conventional on-chip antennas. The system uses binary(More)
In this paper, we present a high-efficiency nonplanar Yagi-Uda antenna array consisting of six wire bonds for on-chip radio applications. The measured and simulated results are presented for the radiation pattern, gain, and radiation efficiency of the antenna at 40 GHz. The array has been characterized with two different ground-plane sizes that are(More)
In the NGN architecture, the resource and admission control functions (RACF) is aimed at providing real-time application-driven and policy-based transport resource management for a wide range of services and transport technologies. The RACF has two entities; PD-FE (policy decision functional entity) and TRC-FE (transport resource control functional entity).(More)
Radiation efficiency of a dipole antenna is discussed when placed closely to a 0.11×0.11 λe low-resistivity (10 Ω·cm) silicon wafer. The use of a small-size floating metal layer underneath the silicon wafer is proposed for efficiency improvement. The total antenna area with the silicon wafer is 0.13×0.2 λe. Coand cross-polarized radiation patterns in H and(More)
Target-detection with a proof-of-concept electronically-steerable array (ESA) antenna is demonstrated in this paper. First, the clutter level is investigated by using verticallyand horizontally-polarized electric fields. Two metallic cylinders with different sizes are subsequently used as targets and are characterized using standard 15-dBi horn antennas.(More)
