Title:
A SiGe Monolithically Integrated 75 GHz Push-Push VCO 
Abstract:
In this paper we present a fully monolithically integrated push-push VCO fabricated in a production-near SiGe:C bipolar technology. The output frequency of the oscillator can be varactor tuned from 71.3 GHz to 75.8 GHz. In this tuning range the measured output power is 3.5 /spl plusmn/ 0.4 dBm and the measured single sideband phase noise is less than -105dBc/Hz at 1MHz offset frequency. The SiGe:C bipolar transistors show a maximum transit frequency f/sub T/ = 200 GHz and a maximum frequency of...    »
