2011 (English)In: Microwave and optical technology letters (Print), ISSN 0895-2477, E-ISSN 1098-2760, Vol. 53, no 9, 2192-2197 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
A differential six-port demodulator for the 7-8 GHz band is reported for the first time. It is composed of a differential six-port correlator on the two sides of the substrate and zero-bias antiparallel Schottky diodes acting as power detectors. It is theoretically analyzed and also simulated. A prototype has been fabricated and data transmission at 0.8 Gbit/s (but not the maximum) with the 16 quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) is experimentally demonstrated.
