A CMOS reconfigurable LNA is reported. By combination of switched inductors and varactors it performs continuous frequency tuning from 2.4 to 5.4 GHz with 500 MHz 3 dB-bandwidth. Switching transistor is used to provide variable gain control over a 12 dB-range. The LNA supports standards including Bluetooth, WiMAX, UWB mode-1, 802.11 b/g and part of 802.11a.(More)
A 1.5 V, 3~11 GHz CMOS UWB LNA using dual feedback loops is reported. Using shunt capacitive feedback and series transformer feedback the broadband matching condition is achieved with high flat gain. Fabricated in 0.18 mum CMOS process, the measurement result demonstrates power gain of 11 dB and maximum NF less than 5.6 dB throughout the frequency range(More)
A 2.4-5.4-GHz CMOS reconfigurable low-noise amplifier (LNA) is designed. It consists of two stages: a broadband input stage for a steady input matching and noise performance, and a reconfigurable band-selective stage which provides a wide-range frequency tuning from 2.4 to 5.4 GHz and a 12-dB stepped gain with linearity adjustment. The frequency tuning is(More)
The simultaneous noise and impedance matching (SNIM) condition for a common-source amplifier is analyzed. Transistor noise parameters are derived based on the more complete hybrid-¿ model, and the dominant factors jeopardizing SNIM are identified. Strategies for narrowband and broadband SNIM (BSNIM) are derived accordingly. A dual reactive feedback circuit(More)
Two high-linearity inductorless broadband low-noise transconductance amplifiers (LNTAs) employing noise and distortion cancellation techniques are presented. The core design employs a common-gate input stage and a common-source error-amplifier (EA) stage. Stacked PMOS-NMOS topology enables large-signal operation while the drain current is reused. The high(More)

A power-efficient continuous-time delta-sigma modulator (CTDSM) employing a single-amplifier biquad (SAB) based topology is proposed. The modulator incorporates a proposed twin-T SAB topology where the excess loop delay (ELD) is compensated by injecting a feedback signal into an internal node of the SAB while cooperating with an additional(More)
