Abstract

A 30-GHz band power amplifier (PA) IC is designed, fabricated and fully tested in 120-nm SiGe HBT process. The impedances of the output matching network are optimized at both the fundamental and second harmonic for a high power added efficiency (PAE). At a supply voltage of 1.4 V, the PA IC has exhibited a measured output P1dB of 10.8 dBm, a peak PAE of 32.4%, and a small-signal gain of 9.1 dB at 30 GHz.
