A highly integrated chipset for 40 Gbps wireless D-band communication based on a 250 nm InP DHBT technology
Paper in proceedings, 2014
A highly integrated chipset comprising a transmitter (TX) and a receiver (RX) chip, based on a 250 nm InP DHBT technology for high data rate D-band (110-170 GHz) wireless communication is described. The chipset is designed for point-to-point wireless communication for 4G and 5G mobile communication infrastructure, high data rate backhaul, low-latency wireless HDTV transmission and >40 Gbps transmission over dielectric waveguide. The measured RX conversion gain is 26 dB, with a noise figure of 9 dB. The measured TX conversion gain is 20 dB. A maximum QPSK data rate of 44 Gbps is demonstrated, which exceeds the present state-of-the art in the D-band by a factor of 2.
