— A 2.4 GHz resistive ring mixer with on-chip baluns is fully integrated in 0.18μm IBM7HP process. This mixer exhibits broadband RF impedance matching with return loss better than-10 dB through the RF frequency range from 2 to 6 GHz. The conversion loss of 7.8 dB is achieved at the RF frequency 2.4 GHz. This mixer provides 6 dBm of the input P1dB, and 13.4(More)
This paper investigates the advantages of using PMOS devices for passive resistive mixer design. The experimental results presented in this paper demonstrate that PMOS mixers offer the advantage of higher signal to noise ratio at very low output frequencies. The significantly lower 1/f noise more than compensates for the higher conversion loss on PMOS mixer(More)
