A broadband microwave/millimeter-wave (MMW) Gilbert-cellmixer using standard 1P8M 0.13-/spl mu/m complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) technology is presented in this letter. Two radio frequency (RF) transformer baluns are used in RF-and local oscillator (LO)-ports to convert single-ended signals to differential signals. Thin film microstrip line is employed for the matching networks and transformer design. This mixer has a conversion gain of better than 5dB from 9 to 50GHz. Between 5… CONTINUE READING
