This paper introduces a novel on-chip measurement technique for the determination of the central frequency and 3dB bandwidth of a 60GHz power amplifier (PA) by performing low frequency temperature measurements in silicon integrated circuits. The techniques is implemented by using a temperature sensor embedded in the same silicon die as the PA, and placed in empty spaces next to it. Results confirm that temperature sensors can be used as functional built-in testers which serve to reduce testing costs and enhance yield as part of self-healing strategies.
