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 ...
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 ...
