Abstract

This paper presents a digitally controlled vector modulator integrated circuit aimed for millimeter wave phased array systems. The vector modulator operates over 60-100 GHz range covering 360 degree phase and over 10 dB gain control ranges. The maximum gain of 35.6 dB is achieved at 96.8 GHz. The chip is processed in 0.13 μm silicon germanium technology. Size of the chip including the pads is 2.1 × 0.7 mm2 from which the vector modulator core occupies 0.45 × 0.30 mm2.
