The design and measured results of a 120 GHz/140 GHz dual-channel OOK (ON-OFF Keying) receiver are presented in this paper. Because a signal with very wide frequency width is difficult to process in a single-channel receiver, a dual-channel configuration with channel selection is adopted in the proposed receiver. The proposed receiver is fabricated using 65 nm CMOS technology. The measured data rate of 3.0 and 3.6Gbps, minimum sensitivity of -25.6 and -27.1 dBm, communication distance of 0.30 and 0.38m are achieved in the 120- and 140-GHz receiver, respectively. The correct channel selection is achieved in the 120-GHz receiver. These results indicate the possibility of the CMOS multiband receiver operating at over 100 GHz for low-power high-speed proximity wireless communication systems.
