Abstract

A 324GHz frequency generator is realized in 90nm CMOS based on linear superposition of phase-shifted fundamental signals at 81 GHz. The technique minimizes the fundamental, 2nd and 3rd harmonics and results in a high fundamental-to-4th-harmonic signal-conversion efficiency of 17% (or -15.4dB). The prototype produces a calibrated output of-46dBm when biased at 1V using 12mA current.
