A fully differential low-voltage mixer topology is presented. The problem of stacking input-, cascode- and switching-transistors within 1.2 V supply voltage is solved by the use of a bulk driven mixer core. In order to demonstrate the feasibility a test chip was manufactured in INFINEON triple well 90 nm standard CMOS process. The differential mixer includes an on-chip resistive 50 /spl Omega/ termination and an operational amplifier for measurements. The chip features a gain of 3.2 dB, a DSB… CONTINUE READING
