Abstract

Challenges in the implementation of THz circuits based on Si-based technologies such as Si CMOS and SiGe HBT technologies are overviewed in this paper. Major challenges described in this work include the operation speed of Si devices, loss of Si substrate, model accuracy, uncertainty in EM simulation, and the presence of dummy patterns. Possible techniques to partly circumvent the challenges are also discussed. A review of recently reported Si-based circuits operating beyond 100 GHz is provided.
