This paper presents a 60 GHz ultra-wideband (UWB) transceiver for indoor communication using SiGe BiCMOS technology. To simplify the design, the transmitter architecture is based on single-ended functions. This work describes a single-pole single-throw (SPST) switch and a low noise amplifier (LNA) at 60 GHz. These two circuits were designed in SiGe BiCMOS 0.13 μm technology. The RF-switch presents a 40 dB ON/OFF ratio at 60 GHz and the LNA exhibits a 16 dB gain and a noise figure of 8 dB.
