  • Presents an overview of the 60 GHz communication system and technology by emphasizing on the method to meet low-cost and extremely high-data-rate wireless communication link requirements for both indoor and outdoor data transfer applications
  • Addresses in depth technical issues, limitations, considerations, and challenges facing integrated circuit and system designers in designing high-speed wireless communication systems from the silicon perspectives
  • Illustrates fundamental principles and concepts and covers various transceiver architectures, circuit techniques, and configurations that serve to fill the gap between traditional radio frequency and MMW IC designs
  • Equips IC designers and engineers with the knowledge to effectively design low-power MMW circuits and systems


The increasing demand for extremely high-data-rate communications has urged researchers to develop new communication systems. Currently, wireless transmission with more than one Giga-bits-per-second (Gbps) data rates is becoming essential due to increased connectivity between different portable and smart devices. To realize Gbps data rates, millimeter-wave (MMW) bands around 60 GHz is attractive due to the availability of large bandwidth of 9 GHz.

Recent research work in the Gbps data rates around 60 GHz band has focused on short-range indoor applications, such as uncompressed video transfer, high-speed file transfer between electronic devices, and communication to and from kiosk. Many of these applications are limited to 10 m or less, because of the huge free space path loss and oxygen absorption for 60 GHz band MMW signal.

This book introduces new knowledge and novel circuit techniques to design low-power MMW circuits and systems. It also focuses on unlocking the potential applications of the 60 GHz band for high-speed outdoor applications. The innovative design application significantly improves and enables high-data-rate low-cost communication links between two access points seamlessly. The 60 GHz transceiver system-on-chip provides an alternative solution to upgrade existing networks without introducing any building renovation or external network laying works.
