A novel size reduction of a MMIC I/Q direct down converter in uniplanar technology at 20 GHz using CPW and ACPS stubs loading for an EHF satcom terminal phased array size

Abstract

This paper proposes a novel compact uniplanar 20 GHz/baseband I/Q direct downconverter GaAs MMIC. It uses previously developed ACPS and CPW structures for capacitive and inductive loading techniques to drastically reduce its size. The proposed I/Q down converter uses direct analog extraction of the baseband in-phase and quadrature (I and Q) signals from the… (More)
