Multi-standard mobile TV tuners adopt differential input front-ends with external passive baluns, achieving high IIP2 at the price of increased cost and system complexity. A low-noise active balun is proposed in this presentation that can achieve broadband impedance matching, low noise and high IIP2 at the same time by introducing a low-noise IM2(More)
A unified description of multiple feedback commongate low-noise amplifiers (LNAs) is presented, providing analytical expressions for gain, noise figure, linearity, and stability conditions. Moreover, from the theory, a new methodology for LNA optimization is developed. This new approach, called adaptive optimization, uses the ability to reconfigure the(More)
