Course TitleGIAN 151003D01: Millimeter Wave Integrated Circuits: 60GHz and Beyond
Course Contento Introduction to mmWave systems and applications.
 o Si-based devices for mmWave (Modern SiGe and CMOS technologies, fT, fmax, current- density scaling, large-signal models).
 o Si-based passive devices (Inductors, capacitors, resonators, transformers, transmission lines, impact of BEOL).
 o mmWave amplifier design (Max. available gain, max. unilateral gain, cascade vs. cascode)
 o mmWave and microwave low-noise amplifier design (CS, CB, NFmin, Yopt, noise circles).
 o mmWave power-amplifier design (Class A-F, load-pull, efficiency/output power circles, impedance transformation and power combining).
 o mmWave mixers for frequency translation.
 o mmWave VCOs (LC oscillators, standing-wave oscillators, push-push and distributed oscillators). o Oscillator phase-noise theory and its impact on mmWave VCO design.
 o Injection locking, injection pulling and coupled oscillators.
 o mmWave frequency synthesis (Regenerative dividers, injection locked dividers, mmWave PLLs). o Phased arrays and multiple-antenna systems (Architectures, phase-shifter circuits).
