  • This Master thesis describes the research towards the integration of RF power detectors for 3G cellular phones and base stations in CMOS technology1. It is a feasibility study with the emphasis on the identification of fundamental limitations of CMOS (particularly CMOS9) and of a number of squaring circuits for this specific application, rather than to meet the target specifications. This report starts with a literature study about this kind of application and the possibilities to detect such… CONTINUE READING
