A weak-inversion low-power active mixer for 2.4 GHz ISM band applications
This work describes a fully integrated active mixer designed in 0.18µm CMOS technology for 2.4 GHz Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) band applications. The mixer uses a source driven local oscillator (LO) to integrate ...
A novel CMOS low-noise amplifier design for 3.1-to 10.6-GHz ultra-wide-band wireless receivers
An ultra-wideband (UWB) 3.1- to 10.6-GHz low-noise amplifier (LNA) employing a common-gate stage for wideband input matching is presented in this paper. Designed in a commercial 0.18-um 1.8-V standard RFCMOS technology, ...
A subthreshold low-noise amplifier optimized for ultra-low-power applications in the ISM band
The IEEE 802.15.4 standard relaxes the requirements on the receiver front-end making subthreshold operation a viable solution. The specification is discussed and guidelines are presented for a small area ultra-low-power ...
An energy-aware CMOS receiver front end for low-power 2.4-GHz applications
A receiver front end designed in 0.18- um CMOS consisting of a low-noise amplifier and IQ mixers is presented. The front end’s power consumption is controllable from 5.0 down to 1.4 mA. It is proposed to push the receiver ...
Fully symmetrical monolithic transformer (true 1:1) for silicon RFIC
A novel on-chip transformer configuration that gives an identical inductor pair, a higher individual coil self-resonant frequency (SRF), and excellent area efficiency are presented. This technique involves the unique ...
High self-resonant and area efficient monolithic transformer using novel intercoil-crossing structure for silicon RFIC
Novel on-chip multiport symmetrical transformer that has high self-resonant frequency and good area efficiency is presented. This technique involves the unique way of intercrossing the transformer’s primary and secondary ...
