A Fully Integrated 24GHz 8-Path Phased-Array Receiver in Silicon

H. Hashemi, X. Guan, and A. Hajimiri

A fully integrated 8-channel phased-array receiver at 24 GHz is demonstrated. Each channel achieves a gain of 43 dB, noise figure of 8 dB, and an IIP3 of -11dBm, consuming 29 mA of current from a 2.5 V supply. The 8-channel array has a beam-forming resolution of 22.5°, a peak-to- ratio of 20 dB (4-bits), a total array gain of 61 dB, and improves the signal-to-noise ratio by 9 dB.
