  1. 1. 60 GHz Mixer and Multifunctional MMICs in GaAs pHEMT and mHEMT technologies

    Author : Sten Gunnarsson; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Image reject mixer; Broadband wireless communication; Single-chip; Multifunctional; Mixer; Balanced resistive mixer; GaAs; Dual-quadrature mixer; 60 GHz; Receiver; pHEMT; MMIC; High data-rate; Double balanced Gilbert mixer; mHEMT; Transmitter; V-band;

    Abstract : In recent years, the 60 GHz band has gained increased academic and commercial interest mainly due to the relative large amount of license free and little used frequency spectrum located in vicinity of 60 GHz. The exact locations of these free frequency bands varies locally but the 5962 GHz band overlap around the world and is therefore a true world wide license free band. READ MORE

  2. 2. Integrated VCOs in Gallium Arsenide HEMT technologies with a novel varactor structure

    Author : Mattias Ferndahl; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; mHEMT; design; HEMT; GaAs; MMIC; varactor; pHEMT; Oscillator; VCO;

    Abstract : This thesis presents results on metamorphic and pseudomorpic GaAs HEMT based Voltage Controlled Oscillators and a novel high-Q varactor structure, used in the VCOs, together with a straightforward extraction procedure for the varactors.Theory and fundamentals around LC-oscillators with oscillator criteria, phase noise and different topologies are given as background together with VCO phase noise measurement methods and an overview on device flicker noise; its physical origin and measurement.
