60 GHz wavelet generator for impulse radio applications

Egard, Mikael; Arlelid, Mats; Lind, Erik; Caroff, Philippe; Astromskas, Gvidas; Borg, Mattias; Wernersson, Lars-Erik


A wavelet generator producing 100 ps short pulses at 60 GHz is presented. The wavelet generator consists of a gated tunnel diode (GTD) integrated in parallel with an inductor. This forms a negative differential conductance (NDC) oscillator with the ability to switch the NDC property on and off, which makes it possible to generate short pulses. In the experiments described, the wavelet generator drives a 50 Ω load and delivers 206 mVpp when generating 97 ps short pulses at 60 GHz. It is...[Show more]
