Abstract

This paper presents a BiCMOS mm-Wave frequency quadrupler for E-band wireless backhaul applications. The circuit is intended to be a building block of a low-phase-noise E-Band frequency synthesizer. The multiplier employs transformer-coupled resonators for GBW enhancement and single-ended-to-differential conversion. The measured prototype achieves 27% fractional bandwidth around 74 GHz, with only 7mW power consumption.
