This book focuses on the development of design techniques and methodologies for 60-GHz and E-band power amplifiers and transmitters at device, circuit and layout levels. The authors show the recent development of millimeter-wave design techniques, especially of power amplifiers and transmitters, and presents novel design concepts, such as apower transistor layouta and a4-way parallel-series power combinera, that can enhance the output power and efficiency of power amplifiers in a compact silicon area. Five state-of-the-art 60-GHz and E-band designs with measured results are demonstrated to prove the effectiveness of the design concepts and hands-on methodologies presented. This book serves as a valuable reference for circuit designers to develop millimeter-wave building blocks for future 5G applications.In addition, it is difficult to realize the Class C amplifier at mm-Wave. To tackle this , an adaptive bias circuit is implemented so that the auxiliary amplifier is biased below the threshold voltage at low input power and is biased at Class AB at high anbsp;...
