Keynote Speaker Professor Herbert Zirath (CHALMERS): "Design of millimeterwave multifunction integrated circuits for data communication and remote sensing applications"

The transmission rate of wireless data in the mobile networks is doubling every year due to the increased usage of mobile multimedia services like streaming video, music, television, data transfer in smartphones and laptop-computers etc. This tendency will require continuously improved telecom infrastructure regarding both base-stations and the backhaul communication links. Today, the E-band (71-76, 81-86, 92-95 GHz) is employed increasingly in the networks, allowing multi Gbps data rate. In a near future however, the E-band will be crowded, and novel, higher frequency bands can to be employed as well. Several hundred Gigahertz bandwidth is available for new communication and sensing applications just waiting to be exploited at frequencies above 100 GHz. Until now, components for making such ‘THz-systems’ have been too expensive, too bulky, too power hungry and nonsufficient in terms of generating enough power for communication systems. With newly developed RFIC-processes, it is now possible to design multifunctional integrated circuits, realizing a full ‘frontend on a chip’ at frequencies well beyond 100 GHz. Recent results from ongoing projects aiming at enabling new applications for next generation mobile infrastructure, 5G, and imaging, up to 340 GHz will be reported. So far, critical building blocks such as LNA, PA, VCO, modulator and demodulator, frequency multiplier, power detector and mixer have recently been developed, and results will be reported. Multifunction front-end circuits such as complete receive and transmit RFICs, mixed signal designs for co-integrated baseband/frontend ICs, and radiometer ICs have also been developed and will be reported as well, including the newly developed D-band frontend chipset demonstrating state-of-the-art bitrate of beyond 40 Gbps.

Keynote presentation Professor Herbert Zirath (CHALMERS): 4 W highly linear and reliable GaN power amplifier for C-band applications
[ More ][ Less ]
A C-band GaN amplifier is reported. The design method is focused on high linearity load optimization and use of non-linear transistor models to predict harmonic generation and intermodulation products. The amplifier is characterized in terms of S-parameters, single tone and two tone output power. The measured small signal gain is 24.6 dB. The 1 dB compression point is measured at 36 dBm and the output third order intercept point (OIP3) is above 45 dBm. The power consumption is 10.7 W, the channel temperature 205 °C at drain bias 15 V avoiding stress on the device for reliable operation.
