Abstract

A Y-vector oscillator network is devised to configure (sub)-mm-wave/terahertz (THz) beamforming systems with minimized footprint and energy consumption. It requires no traditional adjustable phase shifter at multi-channel front end which usually suffer from high insertion loss at these frequencies. A compact (1.4mm2) CMOS lx4 Beam Steering Phased Array (BSPA) based on this network is validated at 0.55THz with pm 30 steering angle range. This is the first monolithic BSPA reported beyond 0.5THz.
