Chapter 5. MmWave RF and Analog Devices and Circuits

5.1 Introduction

This chapter presents recent developments and design approaches in analog devices and circuitry that will enable incredible bandwidths and multi-gigabit per second (Gbps) data rates for mobile devices through the use of mmWave wireless carrier frequencies. We highlight modern analog design techniques and practical specifications for mmWave devices, circuits, and components within the last decade.

First, we present the basic concepts for mmWave transistors, devices, and systems for modern applications, as the transistor forms the basis of all the circuit blocks in a wireless transceiver and baseband processor. To characterize transistors and circuits, we introduce the various ...
