Abstract

In this paper, a F-band 90 nm CMOS frequency doubler using active CS-based Gm-boosted technique is proposed. When the Gm-boosted technique is applied to the frequency doubler design, the input driving power reduces due to the boosted input voltage swing. Therefore, the conversion gain can be improved. The proposed frequency doubler exhibits a conversion of -3.3 dB and a fractional bandwidth of 26.5%. At 60-GHz output frequency, the maximum output Psat is higher than 1 dBm with a maximum dc-to-RF conversion efficiency of 3.4% The output frequency is from 49 to 64 GHz with a fractional bandwidth of 26.5%.
