This letter demonstrates a fully integrated transmit/receive single-pole-double-throw switch in standard bulk 90 nm CMOS process. This switch is based on the transmission-line integrated approach that reduces the effect of parasitic capacitance of transistors in the desired band, and this approach can achieve good isolation and return loss with fewer stages of transistors and broad bandwidth. The switch provides an insertion loss of 3-4 dB and a return loss better than 10 dB in 60-110 GHz. The measured isolation is better than 25 dB. The measured 1 dB compression point of input power is 10.5 dBm at 75 GHz. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first CMOS switch operating beyond 100 GHz.
