Monolithically-Integrated Millimetre-Wave Wavelet Transmitter With On-Chip Antenna
Journal article, 2014

An integrated millimeter-wave wavelet transmitter has been fabricated and characterized. It consists of a generator core on a co-designed compact monolithically-integrated antenna. The peak output equivalent isotropic radiated power has been measured to 11 dBm, in 80, 160, and 320 ps wavelets centred at 63.5 GHz. This corresponds to a power of 5 dBm radiated from the 6 dBi antenna. At a dc-supply of 1.45 V, the on-state power dissipation was estimated to 37 mW. The radiated wavelet-power over dc-dissipation conversion-efficiency is 9%.
