—An efficient modeling technique and a novel CAD tool for the accurate prediction of the performance of integrated inductors and transformers is presented. This generic and process-independent approach generates lumped-element models that easily plug into the RF IC design flow. Their accuracy is established through comparisons with measurements of numerous(More)
This paper presents an in-depth analysis of the operation of a CMOS single-chip three-dimensional inductor over a MOSFET structure at RF frequencies. Active circuitry is placed underneath the integrated inductors in order to take advantage of the vacant space. Measurements indicate that the operation of the MOSFET and of the inductor is affected in a(More)
