MATRICs (Microwave Array Technology for Reconfigurable Integrated Circuits) is a DC-to-20 GHz general purpose reconfigurable array of RF circuits embedded in a flexible switch fabric. Fabricated in a commercial SiGe-on-SOI BiCMOS process, the MATRICs IC employs SiGe HBTs for high-linearity (> + 10 dBm IIP3) amplification and low phase-noise frequency(More)
This paper presents a configurable frequency generator (CFG) capable of synthesizing frequencies between 10 MHz and 20 GHz with superior far-out phase noise of less than -150 dBc/Hz at 100 MHz offset when synthesizing >10 GHz, reference spurs less than -70 dBc, settling times of less 3 μs, and support for multiple reference frequencies through the(More)
