This paper presents a 60 GHz power amplifier utilizing a novel technique to achieve high efficiency at high output power levels. The proposed topology provides the capability of dual mode operation. The output power of a conventional class A power amplifier will be combined with the power provided by an amplifier operating at a different class to achieve(More)
This paper presents a compact 60 GHz power amplifier utilizing a novel 4-way multi-conductor power combiner and splitter. The proposed topology provides the capability of combining the output power of four individual power amplifier cores in a compact die area of 0.025 mm<sup>2</sup> with the advantage of lower insertion loss and higher efficiency compared(More)
in this paper, a low phase noise cross-coupled differential voltage controlled oscillator is designed in 0.13-&#x00B5;m CMOS for use in 60 GHz applications. Using a tuned output buffer, the single-ended output voltage of 1 Vp-p is provided into a 100-fF capacitive load. Measured phase noise below &#x2212;96 dBc/Hz at a 1-MHz offset is achieved, using an(More)
