Abstract [en]

This paper presents a novel D-band interconnect implemented in a low-cost embedded Wafer Level Ball Grid Array (eWLB) commercial process. The non-galvanic transition is realized through a slot antenna directly radiating to a standard air filled waveguide. The interconnect achieves low insertion loss and relatively wide bandwidth. The measured average insertion loss is 3 dB across a bandwidth of 22% covering the frequency range 110138 GHz. The measured average return loss is -10 dB across the same frequency range. Adopting the low-cost eWLB process and standard waveguides makes the transition an attractive solution for interconnects beyond 100 GHz. This solution enables mm-wave system on chip (SoC) to be manufactured and assembled in high volumes cost effectively. To the authors' knowledge, this is first attempt to fabricate a packaging solution beyond 100 GHz using eWLB technology.
