Millimeter-Wave Resonator Based on High Quality Factor Inductor and Capacitor Based on Slow-Wave CPS

This work introduces the concept of a quasi-lumped LC resonator integrated in CMOS technology and based on slow-wave transmission lines. The quasi-lumped inductor and capacitor constituting the resonator are synthesized using slow-wave coplanar stripline exhibiting high quality factor and small footprint. The proposed concept is demonstrated at mm-wave frequencies around 40 GHz through the design of a shunt resonator. Good agreement between simulation and measurement is observed.
