A mixed-mode high-speed binary phase-shift keying (BPSK) demodulator for IEEE802.15.3c mm-wave wireless personal area network (WPAN) application is realized with 0.18-μm CMOS process. The proposed demodulator scheme does not require any analog-to-digital converters (ADC) and, consequently, can have advantages over the conventional schemes for high-data-rate demodulation. The demodulator core consumes 53.8 mW from 2.5-V power supply while the chip area is 380 × 500 μm2. The fabricated chip is verified by 60-GHz wireless link tests with 1.6-Gb/s data.
