In this paper, a 60-GHz CMOS RFIC-on-chip triangular monopole antenna is presented. A planar triangular-monopole structure fed by the CPW line is adopted to design the on-chip antenna. The FEM-based 3D full-wave EM solver, Ansoft HFSS, is used for the design simulation. The antenna chip is fabricated with a 0.18-mum CMOS process. The on-wafer measurement in(More)
This paper presents a 60-GHz millimeter-wave RFIC-on-chip triangular monopole antenna fabricated with TSMC 0.18-mum CMOS process. A planar triangular-monopole structure fed by the CPW microstrip line is adopted to design the on-chip antenna. The measured VSWR is less than two from 50 to 65 GHz. The simulated H-plane radiation pattern is nearly(More)
