A low-power and high data-rate fully integrated 60-GHz on-off keying (OOK) transceiver for short-range wireless communication is demonstrated. The transceiver consists of a switch, transmitter, and receiver and uses OOK modulation for a compact and low-power design. With a highly efficient Tx, high-speed modulator/demodulator, and wideband characteristic, the transceiver has low-power and high data-rate capability. Implemented in 90-nm CMOS technology, the transmitter and the receiver consume 31 and 36 mW at 10.7 Gb/s and occupy an active footprint of 0.15 and 0.29 mm(2), respectively. The transceiver with an on-board Yagi-Uda antenna achieves 10.7-Gb/s wireless OOK data transmission over 10 cm at a bit-error rate of less than 10(-12) for 2(7) - 1 pseudorandom binary sequence. As a result, the proposed transceiver achieves energy efficiency of 6.26 pJ/bit.
