Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference proceeding contribution


Up to 7GHz of bandwidth is available at 60GHz for license-free wireless communications. Recent improvements in silicon-based technologies have made it possible for 60GHz consumer-oriented applications such as high-definition multimedia streaming at data rates of several Gigabits per second to be realised. General design problems are reviewed and a low-noise amplifier and mixer in 0.18 μm SiGe are presented as part of a fully-integrated down-conversion stage. Future directions are also examined.
