This paper presents a fully integrated 60GHz transceiver module in a 65nm CMOS technology for wireless high-definition video streaming. The CMOS chip is compatible with the WirelessHD™ standard, covers the four channels and supports 16-QAM OFDM signals including the analog baseband. The ESD-protected die (9.3mm2) is flip-chipped atop a High Temperature Cofired Ceramic (HTCC) substrate, which receives also an external PA and the emission and reception glass-substrate antennas. The module occupies an area of only 13.5χ8.5mm2. It consumes 454mW in receiver mode and 1.357W in transmitter mode (357mW for the transmitter and 1W for the PA).
