  • In this paper, high LO-RF isolation 94 GHz MMIC single-balanced mixer was designed and fabricated using a branch line coupler and a ${\lambda}/4$ transmission line. The 94 GHz MMIC single-balanced mixer was designed using the 0.1 ${\mu}m$ InGaAs/InAlAs/GaAs Metamorphic HEMT(MHEMT) diode. The fabricated MHEMT was obtained the cut-off frequency($f_T$) of 189 GHz and the maximum oscillation frequency($f_{max}$) of 334 GHz. The designed MMIC single-balanced mixer was fabricated using 0.1 ${\mu}m$ MHEMT MMIC process. From the measurement, the conversion loss of the single-balanced mixer was 23.1 dB at an LO power of 10 dBm. The LO-RF isolations of single-balanced mixer was obtained 45.5 dB at 94.19 GHz. We obtained in this study a higher LO-RF isolation compared to some other balanced mixers in millimeter-wave frequencies.

  • We have developed a millimeter-wave passive imaging system with reflector for detection of concealed objects. We have designed a millimeter-wave sensor, control device for reflector control, and a lens for focusing of millimeter-wave signal at center frequency of 94GHz. DC signal from millimeter-wave sensor output is filtered by low pass filter and amplified by video amplifier, and then converted into digital signal by using ADC/DAQ. This signal is image processed by computer, and it is possible to obtain millimeter-wave passive image with resolution of $18{\times}64$ pixel using the fabricated system. It is shown that we can obtain the image of men and concealed object with the system.

  • We suggest Q-band MEMS MIMIC (Millimeter wave Monolithic Integrated Circuit) HEMT Oscillator using DAML (Dielectric-supported Airgapped Mcrostrip Line) structure. We elevated the signal lines from the substrate using dielectric post, in order to reduce the substrate dielectric loss and obtain low losses at millimeter-wave frequency. These DAML are composed with heist of $10\;{\mu}m$ and post size with $20\;{\mu}m\;{\times}\;20\;{\mu}m$. The MEMS oscillator was successfully integrated by the process of $0.1\;{\mu}m$ GaAs PHEMTs, CPW transmission line and DAML. The phase noise characteristic of the MEMS oscillator was improved more than 7.5 dBc/Hz at a 1 MHz offset frequency than that of the CPW oscillator And the high output power of 7.5 dBm was measured at 34.4 GHz.

  • The high performance 94 GHz MMIC(Monolithic Micro-wave Integrated Circuit) single balanced mixer was designed and fabricated, using MHEMT structure based diodes and a CPW(Coplanar Waveguide) tandem coupler. A novel single-balanced structure of diode mixer is proposed in this work, where a 3-dB tandem coupler with two section of parallel-coupled line. Implemented air-bridge crossover structures achieve wide frequency operation and the fabricated mixer exhibits excellent LO-RF isolation, larger than 30 dB, in the 5 GHz bandwidth of 91-96 GHz. A good conversion loss of 7.4 dB is measured at 94 GHz. The proposed MHEMT-based diode mixer shows superior LO-RF isolation and conversion loss to those of the W-band mixers reported to date.

  • We designed and fabricated a low local oscillation (LO) power V-band CPW mixer module using a CPW-to-waveguide transition technology for the application of millimeter-wave wireless communication systems. The mixer was designed using a unique gate mixing architecture to achieve simultaneously a low LO input power, a high conversion gain, and good LO-RF isolation characteristics. The fabricated mixer exhibited a high conversion gain of 2 dB at a low LO power of 0 dBm. For data transmission of the 60 ㎓ wireless LNA systems, we fabricated a CPW-to-waveguide converter module of WR-15 type and mounted the fabricated mixer in the converter module. The fabricated V-band mixer exhibited a higher conversion gain and a lower LO input power than other reported V-band mixers.

Low noise amplifiers and down-converters were developed for this chip set. The fabricated low noise amplifier showed an S$\sub$21/ gain of 14.9 ㏈ at 60 ㎓ and a noise figure of 4.1 ㏈ at 52 ㎓. The down-converter exhibited a high conversion gain of 2 ㏈ at the low LO Power of 0 ㏈m. This work demonstrates that the GaAs PHEMT technology is a viable low-cost solution for V-band applications.
