Abstract

A Ka-band (27~40-GHz) sub-harmonically pumped mixer (SPM) fabricated in 180-nm CMOS technology is demonstrated for 5G mm-wave transceivers in this paper. The proposed SPM is composed of anti-parallel gate-source connected FET diode pair (APDP). The SPM measuring 0.48 mm 2 demonstrates a conversion-gain response of-16.8 -12.4 dB for both up- and down-conversion over 27-40 GHz, the required LO frequency from 13.5 to 20 GHz, and a high 2LO-to-RF isolation of 60-80 dB.
