A 2:1 static frequency divider using a band-pass load was fabricated in a digital 90nm SOI CMOS technology. The divider exhibits a maximum operating frequency of 81GHz at 1.2V, and a core power of 15.6mW. The divider can operate down to 0.5V at a maximum operating frequency of 75.6GHz with a core power of 2.75mW.
