Design aspects of millimeter wave multiband front-ends

The fifth generation (5G) mobile communication systems are being developed at many operational frequencies including range of 24-29 GHz. This operational frequency is five times higher than what the commonly used cellular communication systems are operating. As the operational frequency increases, the level of complexity of electronic circuit design also increases remarkably. In this research, author has studied various layout dependent effects and their appropriate modelling for silicon based integrated solutions. Accurate modelling of the silicon devices is the base line towards bigger and more complex systems.

The key findings presented in this thesis are targeted primarily for 5G millimeter wave systems. A general guideline or a way of working is presented in this research indicating different types of modelling procedures during a design flow and verified with experiments. Methods and design techniques proposed in this thesis will assist the seamless processes in the development of future silicon-based mobile communication systems.
