Contribution to the study of transmitters at millimeter frequencies on emerging and advanced technologies

Abstract : For nearly half a century, the microelectronics industry has flourished based on the scaling of the silicon CMOS transistor technology. However, the race to transistor miniaturization encounters inevitable physical barriers. Thus, many technological works are under way for the realization of future transistors on emerging and advanced technologies. These technologies, notably the graphene and the CMOS FD-SOI, represent great opportunities for research in the fields of microelectronics, and especially for the design of radiofrequency and millimeter circuits. Besides, with the rising evolution of wireless devices and services, researchers are intensively working on the fifth generation (5G) wireless systems. The demand for high speed data and the need for more spectrum, have motivated the use of millimeter wave carrier frequencies. Therefore, the 5G research is faced with an evolving set of challenges. One of the major challenges of the next generation communication technology is reducing energy consumption. In fact, the power efficiency is directly related to the reliability and cost of the communication systems. It is widely known that the radiofrequency power amplifier is the most power consuming component in the radio transceivers, and is also one of the most critical building blocks in radio front-end. Therefore, research in this area is crucial for next generation communication systems. Consequently, the objective of this thesis is to study and design power amplifiers on emerging and advanced technologies for 5G applications.
