Abstract

Modern systems require transceivers that deliver gigabit speeds, are smaller in size, and have lower power consumption and cost. This motivates research to develop transceiver-on-chip and transceiver-in-a-package technologies. Recent advances in millimetre wave electronics have meant that significant portions of the system can now be integrated onto a single substrate or package. In order to achieve low costs and high digital integration CMOS is the process of choice as CMOS is the standard and a cost effective process for building digital circuits. Unfortunately compared to other much more expensive processes such as SiGe and GaAs, CMOS has greater process variability, lower carrier mobilit..
