This brief presents an efficient and configurable multiple-input–multiple-output (MIMO) signal detector design solution and its high-speed IC implementation. This detector can support 2 × 2/3 × 3/4 × 4 MIMO and quadratic phase-shift keying/16-state quadratic amplitude modulation (QAM)/64-state QAM modulation configurations. The detection algorithm employs(More)
<?Pub Dtl?>In this paper, low phase-noise, low-power, and compact oscillators are demonstrated at the millimeter-wave region based on differential transmission lines (DTLs) loaded with metamaterial resonators. There are two types of metamaterial resonators explored: split-ring resonators (SRRs) and complementary split-ring resonators (CSRRs). By creating a(More)
With technology scaling down to 90nm and below, many yield-driven design and optimization methodologies have been proposed to cope with the prominent process variation and to increase the yield. A critical issue that affects the efficiency of those methods is to estimate the yield when given design parameters under variations. Existing methods either use(More)

To provide wide frequency tuning range (FTR) with compact implementation area, a new inductive tuningmethod is introduced in this paper for CMOS 60 GHz voltage controlled oscillator (VCO). The inductive tuning is based on a switching inductorloaded transformer by configuring different current return-paths in the secondary coil of the transformer. Different(More)
