D-band MMIC design for high datarate wireless and wire-bound communication based on state-of-the-art InP DHBT and SiGe BiCMOS processes
Paper in proceedings, 2018

This papers describes ongoing work to demonstrate high datarate wireless and wireline communication based on InP DHBT and SiGe BiCMOS MMIC-technologies. A RX/TX chipset was developed at D-band (110-170 GHz) and wireless and wireline communication up to 48 Gbps was demonstrated with QPSK-modulation. Error free communication with 7 bit/symbol was demonstrated at 870 MBaud symbolrate in a 1 GHz wide channel. Recently developed MMICs for communication applications, working in G-band and H-band are presented.
