Abstract

This invited contribution provides insights for implementation of millimeter-wave and terahertz wireless systems on a chip (MTWSOC). We present an overview of important software and simulation tools and key layout issues and design rules for millimeter-wave (mmWave) circuits. An example of a recently fabricated 0.18μm CMOS integrated circuit by the Wireless Networking and Communications Group (WNCG) at The University of Texas at Austin is presented. The example chip includes 60 GHz on-chip antennas, an array of transmission lines, and IMPATT diodes.
