A CMOS direct down-converter with outstanding dynamic range performances


The mechanisms responsible for second order inter-modulation distortion in a direct down-converter are addressed, giving rise to the following design strategy: the transconductor is degenerated by means of an RC filter with pole equal to the signal bandwidth, an LC filter resonating at RF frequency loads the switching pair and carefully matched load… (More)
