Millimeter-wave (MMW) frequencies (30–300 GHz), located between the microwave and infrared (IR), are promising solutions for the increasing demand of high data rate applications, UHD multimedia, HD gaming, security, surveillance, and the emergence of 5G Internet of Things (IoT). In this article, we experimentally demonstrated MMW wireless communication link using InGaAs p-i-n photomixer and commercially available telecom components at W-band (75–110 GHz). The photomixer was excited by two 1.5 µm lasers via standard telecom fiber optics, to generate frequency difference at W-band. QPSK modulated signal transmitted by the photomixer and received horn antenna integrated MMW mixer and analyzed using a spectrum analyzer and Vector Signal Analyzer (VSA) software.
