The trend in cellular chipset design today is to incorporate support for a larger number of frequency bands for each new chipset generation. If the chipset also supports receiver diversity two low noise amplifiers (LNAs) are required for each frequency band. This is however associated with an increase of off-chip components, i.e. matching components for the(More)
This paper presents a 28 GHz QVCO intended to be used in an 81-86 GHz E-band transceiver. E-band transceivers using e.g. 16 QAM modulation schemes are sensitive to I/Q phase error. Already a three degree error significantly degrades the bit error rate, and careful control of the phase error of the 28 GHz QVCO is therefore required. In the presented design(More)
