An enhanced charge pump for the antenna switch controller using the silicon-on-insulator (SOI) CMOS technology is presented in this brief. The pseudo cross-coupled technique is proposed to reduce parasitic capacitances at charging/discharging nodes through charge transferring paths, which improves the current drive capability and provides better accuracy of the output voltage. Furthermore, the... Read more on IEEE Xplore

This brief presents a new design technique for high-efficiency CMOS millimeter-wave power amplifiers (PAs) and the implementations of a two-stage moderate-power PA, a three-stage high-power PA, and a transmitter all working over 68-78 GHz. The proposed PAs adopt nMOS capacitors connected at the gates of the transistors of the last one or two amplifying stages to compensate for the gate... Read more on IEEE Xplore

In this brief, a cross-coupled oscillator is analyzed based on the two-port network theory and the Y- parameter model for a transistor. Contrary to the previous works, the proposed analysis shows that LC cross-coupled oscillators have an additional and higher pure imaginary natural frequency at which the circuit cannot oscillate. The analysis investigates the sufficient condition at which the... Read more on IEEE Xplore
