SIMMWIC integration of millimeter-wave antenna with two terminal devices for medical applications
E. Kasper, and W. Zhang. 2015 IEEE 15th Topical Meeting on Silicon Monolithic Integrated Circuits in RF Systems, page 1-3. (January 2015)
Integration of planar antenna structures with oscillators and rectifiers, respectively, was performed an low loss, high resistivity silicon substrates. IMPATT diodes and special Schottky diodes operated in Mott mode were monolithically integrated in the planar waveguide circuit for mm-wave operation in the W-band (silicon monolithic mmwave integrated circuit-SIMMWIC ). Small chip sizes below 30mm<sup>2</sup> could be obtained to meet requirement for medical endoscopes.
