Thank you to Professor Heydari for the talk, and Kevin and Rui from the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society(MTT-s) Boston section for organizing! We are always looking for more opportunities to be involved with the greater IEEE organization.
Millimeter-wave and Terahertz Integrated Circuits in Silicon Valley: Challenges and Solutions
Thursday, October 29, 5:30pm | Room 2-105
This talk gave an overview of recent advances in designing silicon-based integrated circuits will be capable of operating close to the maximum operation limits of silicon-based transistors. The talk then discussed in depth about two case studies designed in UCI’s Nanoscale Communication Integrated Circuits (NCIC) Labs; namely, the world’s highest fundamental frequency fully differential transceiver in CMOS at 210 GHz, and the world’s highest frequency PLL-based Synthesizer in Silicon at 300GHz with a wide tuning range.
