A novel cost-effective 60-GHz multi-chip module (MCM) is proposed and demonstrated. It is based on a low-cost multilayer printed wiring board (PWB) with a novel vertical transition and a single layer waveguide transition which enables the use of low-cost substrates with high dielectric loss for millimeter wave applications. The proposed MCM technology has been successfolly applied to the packaging of a 60-GHz self-heterodyne mixer, and no substantial difference in the RF performance is observed with the packaging.
