A 76 GHz high performance subharmonic mixer MMIC using low 1/f noise diodes for automotive radars

Abstract

This paper describes a low-noise subharmonic mixer MMIC for 76-GHz automotive radar systems. To improve a noise figure in a 100-kHz low IF band, a low 1/f-noise Schottky barrier diode (SBD) has been developed for the mixer. This SBD can offer 20 dB better 1/f-noise levels than a conventional HEMT type SBD can under the same operating current density… (More)
