Abstract

Monolithically integrated millimeter-wave wavelet transmitters are presented and analyzed in this paper. Two designs that include compact dielectric resonator antennas with either inductive or self-resonant input characteristics are compared. The efficient transmitter front-end core consists of a resonant tunneling diode oscillator that is quenchable by a transistor switch. A physical diode model is used to formulate small-signal matching criteria and study codesign conditions. Fabricated transmitters provide up to 11-dBm equivalent isotropically radiated power in down to 80-ps wideband wavelets at V-band carrier frequencies. Analyses of the radiated waveform envelope and time-frequency characteristics give insight in the circuit operation.
