Title: 60GHz CMOS Transceiver for Ultra High Speed Wireless Communication


In this presentation, the possibility of millimeter-wave wireless communication will be discussed. The 60-GHz ISM band has more than 8GHz bandwidth, and it is capable of at least 42Gb/s by using 64QAM. A 60-GHz transceiver implemented by 65nm CMOS is introduced with some practical design issues.
