A low-voltage low-phase-noise 5.5-GHz differential LC voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) with quadrature outputs for direct and low intermediate frequency conversion is presented. The circuit is fully integrated in IBM's 65-nm radio-frequency complimentary metal-oxide-semiconductor process. Care has to be taken in achieving low phase noise, whereas the VCO(More)
In this paper a direct conversion mixer that adopts a passive mixing stage and achieves very good flicker noise performance is presented. The mixer achieves 7.4 dB of voltage conversion gain with a flicker noise corner frequency of 2 kHz and Third Order Input Intercept Point (IIP3) of 10 dBm. The circuit consumes only 4.5 mW from a 1 - V supply and it was(More)
