Abstract

In this paper, a fully integrated digital adjustable
sixport receiver front-end working at 60GHz is presented.
The circuit features two variable gain amplifier, the
passive sixport network, four detectors and a SPI-interface.
Application area are industrial radar or angle of arrival
detection. The phase measurement is done by superposition
and power detection of two millimeter wave signals. The
integrated circuit has a power consumption of 88.44mW from
a 3.3V supply voltage. It is fabricated in a 0.13μm SiGe
BiCMOS process and has a size of 1560μm x 1000 μm. The
RF and reference input power can be adjusted in a 21 dB
range over a 12 bit digital interface. The receiver exhibits
a 1 dB compression point of -21.9 dB. RF signals down to
-55dBm are detectable.
