Creating and sharing knowledge for telecommunications

Project: Silicon Monolithic Transceiver for Portable Communication Systems in Millimetre Wave

Acronym: SiMTraMil
Main Objective:
The final goals are to design and test a single chip millimetre wave receiver and the key component of the transmitter (power amplifier) with the same technology for a 30GHz LMDS (Local Multipoint Distribution Systems) transceiver. Since, when
needed, passive and active improved components models will be developed during the project and they will be valid for higher frequencies. As a secondary goal we will study by simulations the performance of key components of a future 60GHz WLAN
(wireless local area network) system receiver with SiGe technologies (LNA, down converter and
VCO) and CMOS up to 30GHz.
