Talk Title: Novel mm-Wave/Terahertz Integrated Circuits and Architectures for High-Speed Communications
Series: Integrated Systems
Abstract: This seminar will provide an overview of our research in (sub-)terahertz transceiver architectures and design techniques enabling ultra-high data rate communications. The talk commences with a glimpse into the ongoing research projects at the Nanoscale Communication Integrated Circuits (NCIC) Labs. The presentation will unveil the limitations inherent in conventional transceiver designs when targeting data rates beyond 100 Gbps. We will introduce novel \"end-to-end\" transceiver architectures poised to transcend these constraints. Through three compelling case studies, we will illustrate the transformative potential of this new approach. Additionally, the seminar will provide an in-depth exploration of circuit design techniques, including wideband amplifiers, sub-terahertz signal generation and radiation mechanisms, and high-performance antennas tailored for these cutting-edge applications.
