    abstract = {In this paper a 60GHz bistatic reconfigureable sixport radar for high precision measuring is presented. The frontend is designed in a substrate-integrated waveguide technology including coupler, attenuator and transmission lines. The core of the front-end is a integrated six-port receiver MMIC including the passive six-port structure, a LNA and four detectors. It has been designed using a 0.13µm SiGe BiCMOS process. A BGT60, stabilized by a PLL-circuit, generates the transmit signal for vivaldi antennas. The system includes also a baseband circuit with adjustable differential amplifier, 24bit@52kSa/s ADC converter for signal sampling and DAC converter for gain and attenuation tuning. Furthermore, the stacked system is directly connected to a FPGA board. A full NIOS2 system is set up to control the radar and send the collected data via ethernet to the PC. C++ software is written to configure the system in an easy comfortable way and to visualize the measured data. Measurements show, that the radar works in a range up to five meter. The maximum distance deviation at 1m is 30µm and the standard deviation is 12.6µm.

    receiver front-end working from 110 to 135GHz including an

    bondpads and consumes 100mA from a 3.3V and 82mA from
    a 1.8V supply. The receiver exhibits a 1 dB compression point
    of -1.3dBm at the center frequency of 121.5 GHz. The VCO
    has a tuning range of 27 GHz, with a best case phase noise
    of -110 dBc/Hz at 1MHz offset measured at the divider output
    for PLL stabilization. The maximum oscillator output power is
    -0.4 dBm.

    applications and it is further more well suited for communication
    systems. The receiver has been designed using a 0.13μm SiGe
