In this study, an efficient power combiner for mm-wave frequency transmitters is investigated. The combiner is based on a parallel plate waveguide (PPW) excited with multiple parallel feeds. The Doherty power combiner scheme is also integrated in the proposed concept, to increase the efficiency of the amplifiers when implementing amplitude...

In this paper, we present an experimental strategy to analyze the harmonic content of mm-wave frequency extenders using the VNA (absolute) power calibration step, without requiring spectrum analyzers and/or separate downconverters. The spectral purity of the upconverted band of the extenders is a key requirement to enable entirely software-based...

In this contribution, we present a rigorous analysis based on uncertainty propagation techniques to estimate the random variation of the controlled reflection coefficient in mixed-signal load-pull test benches. A digital-to-analog converter is commonly used in these test benches to generate the baseband signal required to synthesize the high...

The design of a focal plane array (FPA) for imaging at sub-mm wavelengths generally is a trade-off between resolution and sensitivity. For maximum angular resolution, minimal spacing between FPA elements is desired, which leads to increased losses due to spillover and mutual coupling and therefore deteriorates the imaging sensitivity. This work...

This contribution presents the development of an electrically small lens antenna using an artificially loaded thermoplastic at 140-170GHz. We will present the on-going development of the Fly’s Eye front end antenna concept that was presented in [1]. The antenna is composed on a dual plastic lens, a core lens and a shell lens, fed by a double...

In this contribution we present an approach to reduce the error arising from the variations of the lumped load, due to process spread, in probe level calibrations. First, full-wave electromagnetic (EM) simulations are employed to generate the nominal standard responses, then a parametric EM simulation of the load structure is used to generate a...

In this work we present calibration approaches aimed at mitigating the measurement error in testbenches featuring multiple sensor-nodes and operating over-the-air. Such errors can arise from fluctuations in component responses and mechanical tolerances of the setup. The calibration approaches are detailed for the case of the Antenna Dome...

This article presents the development of a focal plane array (FPA) for terahertz imaging applications with a near diffraction-limited resolution achieved through a very tight sampling of the focal plane. The antenna array is integrated with direct detectors in a 22-nm CMOS technology and operates from 200 to 600 GHz. The tight sampling of the...

The continuous advancements in the coverage and sensitivity of terahertz direct-detector imagers places increasing constraints on the test benches needed for characterization. Already, relative differences on the order of a few decibels are observed between simulated and measured performance in the state-of-the-art literature. This...

This article presents an efficient digital polar transmitter (DPTX) at mm-wave frequencies that exploit a novel N -way series Doherty combiner (SDC) to enhance its drain and system efficiency at deep power back-off (PBO). The proposed N -way SDC is scalable and can be implemented elegantly using N transformers and N-1 shunt capacitors. As a...

We report on the first demonstration of dynamic beam steering using a scanning lens phased array. A scanning lens phased array relies on a combination of mechanical and electrical phase shifting to dynamically steer a high-gain beam beyond the grating-lobe free region using a sparse array. These two concepts have been demonstrated separately in...

In this contribution we will present the diffraction-limited imaging capabilities of a focal plane array (FPA) of antenna-coupled direct-detectors at submillimeter wavelengths. The FPA prototype is a tightly sampled, 12-pixel array that was developed in a 22 nm CMOS technology and it covers a band from 200 GHz to 600 GHz. A quasi-optical (QO)...

We report the measured results of a sparse, 4x1 scanning lens phased array prototype at W-band that is capable of beam steering a directive (&gt;30 dBi) beam towards ±20° with sidelobe levels around -10 dB. The array elements are high-aperture-efficiency resonant leaky-wave lens antennas with a feed that suppresses the spurious TM0 mode over a...

In this contribution, We analyze the bandwidth versus accuracy trade-offs of conventional two-step de-embedding approaches, often employed to extract the device model parameters. The accuracy limitation of incorporating the pad/line section of classical DUT test-fixtures into shunt-series complex and frequency-dependent elements is analyzed by...

This work presents a novel lens antenna architecture based on a core-shell lens design with a leaky-wave in-packaged antenna at 150GHz. An electrically small core lens made of dense dielectric material is used to enhance the radiation of the in-packaged antenna. A low-loss dielectric shell lens with electrically large dimensions is then added to...

In this contribution, we employ direct calibration/de-embedding approaches to validate the large signal device model of state-of-the-art HBTs and CMOS technologies operating in the mm-wave frequency band WR6. The capability of placing the first tier calibration reference plane in close proximity to the DUT allows the large signal metric to be...
