|Millimeter-Wave Radio System In A Package|
|Keywords: Milimeter wave, SIP, Radio|
|The thirst for higher data rates and more bandwidth has resulted in increased interest in millimeter-wave systems as a means for local and wider area information transport. At the same time there is a real need to lower cost and more compact systems. These requirements have lead to the development of a highly integrated millimeter-wave System In a Package (SIP) which operates beyond 40GHz. This solution uses low cost ceramic packaging and optimized interconnects and transitions to allow for wide band electrical performance. This paper will present details on the functionality, electrical performance and packaging used to realize this solution.|
