Differential Six-Port Demodulator
2011 (English)In: Proceedings on International Conference on Wireless Communications and Signal Processing, 2011Conference paper (Other academic)
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.
