A Fully Differential Monolithic LNA With On-Chip Antenna for a Short Range Wireless Receiver

Abstract

This letter presents the smallest reported 5 GHz receiver chip (1.3 mm2) with an on-chip antenna in standard 0.13 mum CMOS process. The miniaturization is achieved by placing the circuits inside a meandered antenna. The on-chip antenna is conjugately matched to the low noise amplifier (LNA) over a wide frequency range. The design methodology for co-design… (More)
