  1. 1. Microwave CMOS Beamforming Transmitters

    Author : Johan Wernehag; Institutionen för elektro- och informationsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Beamforming transmitter; CMOS; frequency doubling power amplifier; polyphase filter; phase shifting;

    Abstract : The increase of the consumer electronics market the last couple of decades has been one of the main drivers of IC process technology development. The majority of the ICs are used in digital applications, and for these CMOS is the choice of technology. The urge to squeeze more transistors on to a given area has led to shrinking feature sizes.

  2. 2. Microwave and millimeter wave CMOS Characterization, modeling, and design

    Author : Mattias Ferndahl; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; load-pull; microwave; large-signal; silicon; characterization; modeling; balun; LSNA; frequency doubler; millimeter wave; power amplifier; CMOS;

    Abstract : The use of CMOS technologies for microwave and millimeter wave applications has recently been made possible as a result of increased transistor performance. The fT and fmax have, for example, passed 100 GHz at the 130 nm node and 200 GHz at the 65 nm node. READ MORE

  3. 3. Microwave CMOS VCOs and Front-Ends - using integrated passives on-chip and on-carrier

    Author : Markus Törmänen; Institutionen för elektro- och informationsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; VCO; mixer; microwave; LNA; CMOS; front-end; System-on-Package;

    Abstract : The increasing demand for high data rates in wireless communication systems is increasing the requirements on the transceiver front-ends, as they are pushed to utilize more and wider bands at higher frequencies. The work in this thesis is focused on receiver front-ends composed of Low Noise Amplifiers (LNAs), Mixers, and Voltage Controlled Oscillators (VCOs) operating at microwave frequencies. READ MORE

  4. 4. Micro- and Millimeter Wave CMOS Beamforming Receivers

    Author : Andreas Axholt; Institutionen för elektro- och informationsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; beamforming; CMOS; front-end; microwave; millimeter wave; phase-locked loop; phased-array;

    Abstract : The available bandwidth in wireless communication systems, such as the 802.11 family, is very limited. Together with the ever increasing data traffic, this causes problems. New possibilities are, however, available thanks to wide license-free bandwidth allocated at higher frequencies. READ MORE

  5. 5. Microwave FET Modeling and Applications

    Author : Christian Fager; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : MESFET; uncertainty; model; FMCW; statistical; HEMT; small-signal; extraction; distortion; intermodulation; CMOS; LDMOS; power amplifier; estimation; FET; large-signal; radar; AM noise;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with three distinct topics within the areas of modeling, analysis and circuit design with microwave field effect transistors (FETs). First, the extraction of FET small-signal model parameters is addressed. READ MORE
