ABSTRACT: In this paper, we discuss the trend towards
higher frequencies in many consumer RF applications. This
trend is, on the one hand, a consequence of an apparently
endless demand for increased data rates and, on the other
hand, being enabled by ongoing developments in IC
technology and circuit design. After outlining some of the
application trends that are defining the need for integrated
transceivers operating in the mm-Wave region, the resulting
technology and circuit challenges will be examined.
