Professor Zhang was invited to deliver the keynote speech at Antenna Systems and Short-Range Wireless 2005 held on September 22-23 in Santa Clara, CA, USA.
The world's first differential integrated circuit package antenna (ICPA) in LTCC for single-chip radio developed by our group has been announced to the world. The news arose the great interests among the academia and industries worldwide.
The group is currently working with IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown, NY, USA and Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology to jointly develop the antenna-in-package (AiP) technology for single-chip 60-GHz SiGe radio. The single-chip 60-GHz SiGe radio will revolutionize wireless communications and microwave engineering. The AiP prototype shown here operates over 60-GHz ISM band with the measured gain of 6 dBi and efficiency of 91%.
The group has successfully developed and patented five techniques for CMOS transmit/receive switch to operate at millimeter-wave frequency. The work has been accepted for publication in IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits, which is so far the only RFIC paper from Singapore that reaches the quality of this flagship journal.
