Abstract

This session is composed of innovative tunable and active filters. The first paper will discuss a non-reciprocal bandpass filter using spatio-temporal modulation. In addition, a tunable six-channel diplexer with compact size will be presented. An N-path filter with frequency/code-domain filtering, a balanced-balanced tunable filtering LNA, an electronically-reconfigurable doublet topology, and a liquid-metal-tuning bandpass filter will also be presented.

Abstract

This session presents various effects, phenomena, and modeling techniques. Modeling techniques include an approach for the numerical analysis of inhomogeneous waveguides with anisotropy, and an extension of the planar circuit segmentation method. In the area of propagation, a planar transmission line with enhanced nonreciprocity is presented, and another study is given on exciting Zenneck-wave-like fields on the surface of the earth or ocean. In the scattering area, a novel metasurface is introduced that retro-reflects a circularly polarized wave back to the source, and one more paper experimentally verifies an active cloak that hides a metallic object.

Abstract

Microwave Acoustic Resonators and Filters are key components in the RF frontend carrier aggreation architectures in mobile phones for frequency duplexing and filtering. Laterally excited bulk wave and fin bulk resonators are attractive for 5G applications. For full-duplex architectures non-reciprocal acoustic filters and acoustic delay-element-based sequentially switched delay-line circulators are presented. Finally, tunable frequency agile resonators are presented with a potential to reduce the ever increasing complexity of the RF frontends.

Abstract

In this session, a filter synthesis-based frequency dependent coupling scheme for dual-band filters in presented. A multi-band differential bandpass filter using common-mode suppression for higher stopband rejection and a multi-band bandpass filter design using a reflected group delay method are featured. Next, an absorptive filter using a complementary duplexer is introduced for a negative group delay response. Finally, a substrate integrated waveguide (SIW) filter is described, giving size reduction for mm-wave applications.

Abstract

Nanoscale devices for RF to THz applications are presented. Ferro-magnetic resonance frequency studies are performed using magnetic nano-wires. A black phosphorus MOSFET is fabricated and characterized for good high frequency performance. A high yield fabrication procedure is discussed for use at 220 GHz. The use of quantum capacitance in graphene is explored for parametric amplifiers and down converters. Inverted scanning microwave microscopy is studied for nanometer-scale imaging in platinum diselenide. Magnetic nano-particles are used for developing a compact band-stop filter.

Abstract

While RF/mmW amplifiers are key elements in modern wireless communications and DoD applications, current RF/mmW amplifier performance has approached near saturation and current practice in amplifier designs requires a trade-off between linearity and efficiency. With 5G on the horizon and DoD RF systems moving to the millimeter-wave regime, novel RF/mmW transistor technologies with extreme linearity and efficiency are highly desirable. This focused session will cover emerging mmW transistor technologies toward 5G wireless applications and DoD applications.

Abstract

This session highlights recent advances in 3D printed RF components and interconnects. A squeezed spherical cavity is presented that uses a rectangular slot for higher order mode suppression. Then an integrated transition between suspended rectangular coaxial lines to rectangular waveguide is shown. Novel interconnects including a laser-enhanced direct-printed CPW line operating up to 110 GHz is demonstrated, while a coaxial-to-two parallel wireline is tested up to 40 GHz. The session concludes with a novel helical-based microstrip transmission line enabling phase implementation in fixed length structures.

Abstract

Load-modulated PAs enable higher efficiency at back-off. This can be achieved through 2-way or N-way Doherty or other non-isolated output combiner networks. Low-power CMOS through high-power GaN and LDMOS implementations are presented over various bandwidths below 6GHz.

Abstract

This session features papers that focus on novel RF components and modules that have been realized using additive manufacturing techniques. One paper focuses on an origami frequency selective surface structure that is integrated with thermal actuation mechanisms. A second origami design is based on a 3D-printed foldable substrate. The third paper is a microfluidics-based 3D-printed Butler matrix in coaxial technology. The session concludes with a demonstration of an embedded-on-package 5G energy harvester system.
