A third-harmonic boosting technique is utilized to simultaneously generate 20GHz and sufficiently strong 60 GHz signals in order to avoid any divider operating at 60 GHz. The prototype is fabricated in 40nm CMOS and exhibits a phase noise of −100 dBc/Hz at 1MHz offset from 60 GHz carrier and 25% tuning range. The phase noise and FoMT (figure-of-merit with tuning range) are improved by 5 dB and 4.6 dB, respectively, compared to state-of-the-art.||Funding Details:||European Research Council||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||IEEE||Start page:||279||End page:||282||Copyright (published version):||2015 IEEE||Keywords:||60 GHz; Oscillator; Mm-wave; Harmonic boost; Harmonic extraction; Divider||DOI:||10.1109/RFIC.2015.7337759||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||Proceedings of IEEE Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits (RFIC) Symposium 2015||Conference Details:||2015 IEEE Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits (RFIC) Symposium, Phoenix, Arizona, USA, 17 - 19 May 2015|
