Open AccessA floating-shield inductor implemented in CMOS process is compared with a conventional patterned ground shield inductor for the implementation of a LC voltage controlled oscillator (VCO) operating at mmW frequencies. ...
Non-invasive Monitoring of CMOS Power Amplifiers Operating at RF and mmW Frequencies using an On-chip Thermal Sensor González Jiménez, José Luis; Martineau, Baudouin; Mateo Peña, Diego; Altet Sanahujes, Josep (IEEE Press. Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2011)
Restricted access - publisher's policyIn this paper a non-invasive, contact-less technique for the on-chip observation of PA operation is presented. It uses a differential temperature sensor that transduces the temperature increase due to the power dissipated ...
On the electrical properties of slotted metallic planes in CMOS processes for RF and millimeter-wave applications González Jiménez, José Luis; Martineau, Baudouin; Belot, Didier (2012-05-17)
Restricted access - publisher's policyThis paper presents a study of the effects of slottedmetallicplanes in passive structures built using CMOSprocesses for RF and millimeter-wave (mmW) applications. The impact of holes on the reference plane resistance and ...
