Abstract

A fully integrated CMOS THz transmitter for short range data-links is presented which provides 0.47mW of output power at 294 GHz. The output frequency is derived from a 147 GHz on-chip LO and fully differential caterpillar power amplifier combined with a transformer coupled frequency doubler. The transmitter is integrated with an on-chip dipole antenna for use in THz communication systems and consumes a total of 258 mW.
