Abstract in another language

In this paper, a fully monolithic low-power sixport receiver front-end working from 110 to 135 GHz including an oscillator with divider stages, a passive sixport network and four detectors is presented. The measurement principle is based on an additive superposition of two incident millimeter-wave signals. The receiver circuit blocks are described and the measurement results are presented. All components have been designed using a 0.13 μm 250 GHz fT SiGe BiCMOS technology. The whole integrated circuit has a size of 1960 μm × 1500 μm including bondpads and consumes 100 mA from a 3.3 V and 82 mA from a 1.8 V supply. The receiver exhibits a 1 dB compression point of -1.3 dBm at the center frequency of 121.5 GHz. The VCO has a tuning range of 27 GHz, with a best case phase noise of -110 dBc/Hz at 1 MHz offset measured at the divider output for PLL stabilization. The maximum oscillator output power is -0.4 dBm.
