  • Wideband digital signal processing test-BED for radiometric RFI mitigation

    RFI is a persistent and growing problem experienced by spaceborne microwave radiometers. Recent missions such as SMOS, SMAP, and GPM have all detected RFI in L, C, X, and K bands. To proactively deal with this issue, microwave radiometers must include digital back-end processors that generate data products that facilitate the detection and excision of RFI from desired brightness temperature measurements. The wideband digital signal processing testbed is a platform that allows rapid development of various RFI detection and mitigation algorithms using digital hardware akin to that which might be used for final spaceflight implementation. On it, we evaluate an improved version of the SMAP RFI Digital Signal Processor (DSP) that utilizes the new complex signal kurtosis algorithm as opposed to the real signal kurtosis that is used on the SMAP radiometer. In addition, we show how we scale the DSP to operate at 8.3 times the bandwidth of the SMAP radiometer for operation in K-band.

  • Truly Balanced K-Band Push-Push Frequency Doubler

    This paper presents a truly balanced push-push frequency doubler. The novel concept is based on two lumped quadrature couplers that provide a truly balanced signaling for two doubler cells. As a consequence, the output signal is inherently balanced and a lossy output transformer can be avoided. Hence, higher output power and efficiency can be achieved. As a proof of concept, a K-band doubler is implemented in a 65 nm CMOS technology. At 0 dBm input power, the circuit delivers 5 dBm output power with more than 6 % PAE. The chip draws 26 mA from a 1.2 V supply and the total chip area is 0.85×0.55 mnr2. The fundamental suppression is around 44 dBc. To the best of the authors knowledge, this is the first fully balanced push-push doubler and the achieved results exceed state-of-the-art performance. The concept is applicable to other technologies and frequencies as well.

  • A K-band 24.1% PAE Wideband Unilateralized CMOS Power Amplifier Using Differential Transmission-Line Transformers in 0.18- $\mu \text{m}$ CMOS

    This letter presents a K-band CMOS power amplifier that adopted a unilateralized technique to mitigate the intrinsic gate-drain feedback effect of the transistor for increasing the reverse isolation and power gain. This three-differential-stage amplifier used low-loss transmission-line transformers (TLTs) for the input/output impedance matching networks and the transformers (TFs) for the inter-stage coupling. The obtained 3-dB bandwidth is from 18.8 to 23.3 GHz with better than 58-dB reverse isolation. The amplifier achieves a power gain of 26.2 dB, a saturation output power of 20.3 dBm, an output 1-dB gain compression point of 17.2 dBm and power added efficiency (PAE) of 24.1% under a power consumption of 440 mW. The chip size is 1.12 mm<sup>2</sup> including all pads.

  • An improved G<inf>m</inf>-boosted technique for a K-band cascode Colpitts CMOS VCO

    This paper presents an improved gm-boosted techniques for a K-band cascode Colpitts voltage controlled oscillator (VCO). This modified topology is derivative from conventional gm-boosted technique by using cascoded cross- coupled pairs. By a quantitative small signal analysis, the gm-boosted cascode Colpitts VCO increases its transconductance more than a factor of 0.5[1+(gm1/gm3)(1+C1/C2)]. A K-band VCO was designed to verify the concept. The measured central frequency of the designed VCO is 25.0 GHz with the tunable frequency range from 25.3 to 24.7 GHz. The core power consumption is 13.2 mW from a power supply of 1.5 V, and -103.1 dBc/Hz phase noise at 1 MHz offset. The maximum output power is -7.5 dBm. The calculated figure of merit (FoM) of this VCO is -180 dBc/Hz.

This amplifier combines the outputs of eight multistage amplifier modules utilizing a radial combiner. This state-of- the-art uower leve has been achieved with a noise fiaure of less than 8.0 dB and AM/PM of less than 2&#176;/dB.
