This paper analyzes and presents design equations for a new transformer-based matching network capable of simultaneously matching two different frequencies. This network is then used to realize a dual-band low-noise amplifier that is fabricated in a 0.13 μm CMOS process and is capable of operating at 2.45 GHz and 6 GHz. The measured S21 and noise figure for… CONTINUE READING
