In this paper a low-power wireless data transmitter MMIC at 113 GHz with data rates up to 25 Gbit/s is presented.
The power consumption of the transmitter MMIC is 9.48mW and the output power is about 4.3 dBm. The measured bit error rate is less than 1 * 10(-12) for at least up to 13 Gbit/s. The transmitter is a fully integrated MMIC based on a 50nm InGaAs metamorphic HEMT technology. The circuit consists of a lowpower voltage controlled oscillator as signal generator and a low-loss high-speed switch as amplitude modulator, only needing a single-ended data input signal. The whole transmitter MMIC has a size of only 1.25 * 1mm(2).
