A driver amplifier for the ISM band around 60 GHz has been designed and tested. The amplifier has been designed in conjunction with other transceiver sub-systems in the 0.15 μm GaAs pHEMT process of UMS (PH15). The measurements show behaviour very well matched with the extensive circuit and field simulations. The amplifier is approx. 3x1.8 mm, consumes 910 mW, has a gain of 22 dB, a P-1dB at the output of +14 dBm, and is well matched in the band 60-65 GHz.
