Università di Pavia – Italy

The primary role of UPV within the project is the design and test of the Local Oscillator generation circuits for the D-band transceiver with the BiCMOS 55nm technology. UniPV will contribute to the following work packages:

  • WP1: UniPV will contribute by providing the literature overview and preliminary feasibility study for transceiver architecture and spec definition, considering the issues and constraints related the LO generation circuits.
  • WP2: UniPV will contribute by investigating new circuit solutions for efficient D-band LO generation circuits. Test chips will be designed, integrated and characterized in UniPV labs. The target is to advance of the state of the art of LO generation circuits for spectral and power efficient >10Gb/s wireless transceivers in D-band.
  • WP6: UniPV will coordinate these activities as WP leader. UniPV will contribute to dissemination through scientific papers and by promoting the project to students, researchers and professors worldwide by leveraging different communication channels.
