Abstract

This paper presents a novel sub-harmonic mixer (SHM) IC design for W-band automotive applications in 130-nm SiGe BiCMOS technology. The SHM makes use of a Common Emitter Common Collector Transistor Pair (CECCTP) structure with bottom-LO-configuration. On-chip Marchand balun is utilized for W-band on-wafer measurement. The novel SHM exhibits a conversion gain of 3.9 dB at 80 GHz RF signal with an LO power of-7 dBm at 39.5 GHz. The mixer core consumes only 0.68 mA with a supply voltage of 3.3 V.
