A linearity enhancement technique and its application to CMOS wideband low-noise amplifiers

Undesired harmonics have severe impacts on performance of electronic circuits and systems, especially for those used for radio frequency (RF) applications. In this paper, a harmonic cancellation technique based on combining two phase-shifted versions of the signal is introduced. As a proof-of-concept, a wideband (0.07 to 7.5 GHz) low-noise amplifier (LNA… CONTINUE READING
