This paper presents a wideband vector modulator phase shifter measured at frequency bands reaching and ever surpassing the f t of the technology for 6G beamforming for extremely high data rate applications. The circuit is designed based on 130nm SiGe BiCMOS technology with f t / f max of 300/500 GHz. The chip occupies a die area of 0.53×0.48 mm² and offers a total 360° of phase variation with a pad-to-pad gain of -10dB over its 270–330 GHz operational ranges.
