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

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

    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.

  4. 4. Reconfigurable and Wideband Receiver Components for System-on-Chip Millimetre-Wave Radiometer Front-Ends

    Author : Shakila Bint Reyaz; Robert Malmqvist; Anders Rydberg; Luca Roselli; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Reconfigurable; Wideband; Receivers; Millimetre-Wave; Radiometers; System-on-Chip; Passive Imaging.; Engineering Science with specialization in Microwave Technology; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot mikrovågsteknik;

    Abstract : This thesis presents solutions and studies related to the design of reconfigurable and wideband receiver circuits for system-on-chip (SoC) radiometer front-ends within the millimetre-wave (mm-wave) range. Whereas many of today’s mm-wave front-ends are bulky and costly due to having discrete RF components, single-chip receiver modules could potentially result in a wider use for emerging applications such as wireless communication, short range radar and passive imaging security sensors if realised with adequate performances and at a lower cost.
