A CMOS power amplifier (PA) with a compact spiral-shaped directional coupler for a mobile UHF RF identification (RFID) reader is proposed here, and its output power combiner and the directional coupler are implemented using an integrated passive device process. The two-chip solution not only enables a CMOS PA to be highly efficient, but also allows the directional coupler and the power combiner to be mounted in a compact standard package. A polar transmitter is implemented using the CMOS PA… CONTINUE READING
