This talk presents the design and implementation of a sub-mm-Wave fully integrated signal generator array. It is based on a harmonic oscillator designed in a standard 65-nm digital CMOS technology. The talk will cover the design methodology, the electromagnetic modeling and simulations. The harmonic oscillator concept is further elaborated to build a unique beamforming technique called Y-vector network. This approach has been recently developed by the High-Speed Electronics Laboratory (HSEL) at UCLA. It will be also presented. This beamforming technique features minimized chip area and DC power consumption. It requires no traditional adjustable phase shifter at multi-channel front end which usually suffer from high insertion loss at these frequencies. A compact 1x4 Beam Steering Phased Array (BSPA) is validated at 0.55THz with about ±30° steering angle range.
Dr. Richard Al Hadi received the engineering diploma from Caen's National Graduate School of Engineering in Electronics and Applied Physics and the master’s degree from the University of Caen Basse-Normandie, France, in 2009. He received the Ph.D. degree, suma cum lauda, from the University of Wuppertal, Germany, in 2014. In 2011 he worked as a research fellow at Korea University, Seoul, South-Korea. Dr. Al Hadi has joined University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in 2015 as a postdoctoral fellow. His research interests are terahertz integrated circuits in silicon technologies. Dr. Al Hadi is senior IEEE member, he is a co-recipient of the 2012 Jan Van Vessem Award for the Outstanding European Paper at the IEEE International Solid-State Circuit Conference and the 2014 EuCAP best paper award.
