Abstract in another language

An integrated analog frequency multiplier for a novel high data rate communication system has been developed to multiply a 18 GHz input signal by ten to generate a 180 GHz output signal. With a first step the 18 GHz input signal is fed into a times five edge combiner, which generates an intermediate frequency of 90 GHz. Therefore five different phases with a delta of 72 degree are needed, that are provided by an active allpass filter chain. In a second step the 90 GHz intermediate frequency is given into a double-balanced Gilbert cell mixer. Here, frequency doubling is achieved by feeding the same signal into the LO and RF port of the mixer. Hence, the overall output frequency of 180 GHz results in 180 GHz with a simulated output power of -7 dBm. All simulations are done post-layout. The chip is implemented in a 130 nm BiCMOS technology with a chip area of 0.9 mm x 1 mm.
