A compact ×2 frequency multiplier covering all ku band is implemented in IBM 0.13μm SiGe technology. The transformer coupled circuit uses a common base configuration working in B- class mode and utilizes transmission lines properties to achieve harmonic suppression. The doubler covers a 3dB frequency range between 12.2 GHz to 20.4 GHz with a saturated… CONTINUE READING
