This letter presents a novel quadrature voltage controlled oscillator (QVCO) implemented in a 47-GHz SiGe BiCMOS technology. The QVCO is a serially coupled LC VCO that utilizes SiGe heterojunction bipolar transistors for oscillation and metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistors for coupling. The SiGe BiCMOS QVCO prototype achieves about 14.6% tuning range from 4.3 to 5GHz. The phase noise of the QVCO is measured as -114.3 dBc/Hz at 2-MHz offset. The 5-GHz QVCO core consumes 6-mA current from a 3.3-V power supply and occupies 0.88mm2 area
