D10: 60GHz Electronics (2)

Saturday, August 23  09:40-10:40,  Room #21

Session Chairs: Kiat Seng YEO, Kaixue Ma

Since the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) allocated 7GHz in the 5764GHz band for unlicensed use in 2001, increasing interest are drawn in this band for high speed communication. A 60GHz link could be used to replace various cables used today in the office or home, making wireless display, wireless docking station available. As a result, the evolving 60GHz standard offers new products, markets and applications. However, there are still many technical challenges at 60GHz and it ranges from device modeling, antenna, circuit and system design, to packaging, test and assembly. This session aims to address the major problems encountered with the arrival of 60GHz technology. Topics of interest would include beamforming, transceiver design, phase arrays, MAC/PHY management, secure network authentication, baseband, antenna design as well as innovative design methods to generating stable local oscillators, reducing power consumption and suppressing unwanted interferences, harmonics and sub-harmonics at 60GHz.
