This paper presents a technique to reduce the noise figure of a passive mixer-first receiver front-end. By using lower than 50&#x03A9; switch resistance in the current-mode passive mixer and introducing a positive feedback from baseband to the RF-input, it can be well matched close to f<sub>LO</sub> while achieving a noise figure below 3dB, which is(More)
In this work a low power 5th order chebyshev active-RC low pass filter that meets Rel-8 LTE receiver requirements has been designed with programmable bandwidth and overshoot. Designed for a homodyne LTE receiver, filter bandwidths from 700kHz to 10MHz are supported. The bandwidth of the operational amplifiers is improved using a novel phase enhancement(More)
A receiver front-end supporting contiguous and non-contiguous intra-band carrier aggregation scenarios with a fully integrated spectrum sensor that can detect both in-gap and out-of-band blockers has been implemented in 65nm CMOS technology. An NF of 2.5dB is achieved using a noise canceling LNTA, and linearized OTAs are used to achieve an IIP3 improvement(More)
This paper presents a noise cancelling 0.7-3.8 GHz receiver front-end implemented in 65 nm technology. The circuit has a main path consisting of a high input impedance g<sub>m</sub>-stage, current-mode passive mixers and baseband amplifiers, where the input match is provided by frequency translational negative feedback from baseband to RF input.

A fully integrated remote antenna unit (RAU) intended for fiber-fed distributed multiple-input multiple-output systems is presented. The circuit is designed for narrowband (60 MHz) time-division duplex systems, where an IF over fiber approach is chosen to facilitate the use of low-cost optical components and integrated photodetectors. A novel antenna switch(More)
—We present a high performance low-power digital base-band architecture, specially designed for an energy optimized duty-cycled wake-up receiver scheme. Based on a careful wake-up beacon design, a structured wake-up beacon detection technique leads to an architecture that compensates for the implementation loss of a low-power wake-up receiver front-end at(More)
