AbstractMaXentric, in collaboration with North Carolina State University, is proposing a unique sub-terahertz D-band wireless communication radio that can deliver throughputs exceeding 1 Gb/s at a range of 1 km using a D-band Integrated with V-band Architecture or DIVA. DIVAs Phase I development efforts include the design of a D-band based MMIC that can directly connect to the Gb/S V-band Transceiver (GVT) technology developed by MaXentric. MaXentric Phase I efforts involve the development of the MMIC D-band RF front-end chip and the adaptation of MaXentrics GVT for D-band operations and D-band MMIC integration. DIVAs reliance on using an intermediate v-band front end is a clear balance between a lower risk rapidly maturing V-band and E-band components with a new development for a D-band MMIC. DIVA will offer a 2 Gb/s link throughput based on its current implementation road map with a demonstrable 1.4 Gb/s link throughput today.
