CMOS circuit design for millimeter-wave applications


We have developed a 27 GHz tuned amplifier and 52.5 GHz voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) using 0.18 /spl mu/m CMOS. We used LRL calibration to extract accurate S-parameters for an intrinsic transistor with a microstrip line (MSL) structure consisting of metal1 and metal6. With this technique, we obtained a 17 dB gain and 14 dBm output power at 27 GHz for… (More)
