Abstract

In this work, new receiver concepts and key building blocks, at circuit level, for future millimeter-wave wireless communications standards are introduced. Starting from passive and active devices, trade-offs between technology, performance and circuit choices of millimeter-wave RF front-end circuits are discussed. In particular, power consumption, noise and linearity trade-offs in low-noise amplifiers, mixers, frequency dividers and oscillators are considered. The concepts derived are applied to a large class of wireless communications standards that are broadband in nature at RF and/or require a broadband IF.
