Design of 60GHz 65nm CMOS Power Amplifier.

Abstract : Telecommunication industry claims for increasing data rate in wireless communication systems. The major demand of high data rate applications concerns a large panel of home multimedia exchanging data especially for the uncompressed HD data transfer. The 7GHz band around 60GHz is free of use and fulfils the short range gigabit communication requirements. CMOS technology is most appropriate since it drives a fast time to market with a low cost for high integration volume. However, the use of CMOS technology is challenging to satisfy loss and performance trade-off under power constraints. This thesis aims at designing power amplifiers operating at 60GHz with 65nm CMOS technology from STMicroelectronics. This approach is progressive because it is necessary to analyze and optimize the performance of passive and active components constituting the power amplifier using electromagnetic and microelectronics software. Finally, power amplifiers have been made. Their performances met specifications originally defined.
