A fully integrated WirelessHD compatible 60-GHz transceiver module in 65-nm CMOS process is presented, covering the four standard channels. The silicon die is flip-chipped on top of a low-cost HTCC module which also includes an external 65-nm CMOS PA and large beamwidth antennas targeting industrial manufacturability. The module achieves a 16QAM OFDM modulation wireless link with 3.8 Gbps over 1 m. The transceiver consumption is 454 mW in RX mode (including PLL) and 1090 mW in TX mode (including PLL and external PA).
