    abstract = {In this paper a 120GHz monolithic low-power
    sixport receiver front-end including two variable gain amplifiers,
    a passive sixport network, four detectors and a digital serial
    interface (SPI) is presented. The measurement principle is based
    on the additive superposition of two incident millimeter-wave
    signals, whereas the superposition must be fulfilled under special
    conditions. After power detection, the quadrature components
    can be extracted. The proposed measurement system is well
    suited for industrial radar applications, as well as for biomedical
    applications and it is further more well suited for communication
    systems. The receiver has been designed using a 0.13μm SiGe
    BiCMOS process from IHP (SG13G2). The whole integrated
    circuit has a size of 1560μm x 900μm and only consumes
    102.3mW from a 3.3V supply. The receiver exhibits a 1 dB
    compression point of -13dBm at the center frequency. The
    bandwidth is 15.5 GHz and covers the lower part of the D-Band.
    The gain of the input amplifier can be adjusted from 3 to 16 dB
    by a digital interface. The maximum power consumption of the
    VGA is 46.2mW.}, author = {Völkel, Matthias and Hirsch, Hartmut and Dietz, Marco and Weigel, Robert and Hagelauer, Amelie and Kissinger, Dietmar}, language = {English}, booktitle = {IEEE Bipolar/BiCMOS Circuits and Technology Meeting}, cris = {https://cris.fau.de/converis/publicweb/publication/123561284}, year = {2017}, month = {10}, day = {19}, doi = {10.1109/BCTM.2017.8112916}, eventdate = {2017-10-19/2017-10-21}, eventtitle = {IEEE Bipolar/BiCMOS Circuits and Technology Meeting}, faupublication = {yes}, keywords = {industrial radar; communication receiver; interferometer; phase measurement; sixport; low power; SiGe BiCMOS; millimeter-wave}, pages = {82--85}, peerreviewed = {Yes}, title = {A Low-Power 120-GHz Integrated Sixport Receiver Front-End with Digital Adjustable Gain in a 130-nm BiCMOS Technology}, type = {Konferenzschrift}, venue = {Miami, FL, USA}, }
