In this paper the measured performance of a 3-5 GHz low-power up-converter is presented. The circuit is based on a current-reuse topology with resistive load. It was implemented in a standard low-cost 0.25-mum CMOS technology. The up-converter achieves 3.8-dB of power gain, an output 1-dB compression point of -10.8 dBm, and a 8-dB single-sideband noise… CONTINUE READING
