Communications technology at a frequency range into Terahertz (THz) levels has attracted attention because it promises near-fibre-optic-speed wireless links for the 5G and post-5G world. Transmitter and receiver integrated circuits based on CMOS, which has the ability to realize such circuits with low power consumption at a low cost, are expected to become increasingly widespread, with much research into the underlying electronics currently underway.

This book describes recent research on terahertz CMOS design for high-speed wireless communication. The topics covered include fundamental technologies for terahertz CMOS design, amplifier design, physical design approaches, transceiver design, and future prospects.
