This paper presents a fully integrated digitally controlled 60GHz RF-beamforming receiver front-end in CMOS. Using digitally controlled active phase shifters, each path of the scalable architecture achieves 10dB power gain, 7.2dB noise figure, a 360º phase shift range in 22.5º steps at 61GHz, and a 3dB-bandwidth of 5.4GHz, while only dissipating 78mW in each path. Chip area is 1.6mm2.
