This paper presents the comparison in terms of noise figure between common source and cascode LNAs. The classic MOS noise model is used to derive an expression for the noise figure of the cascode topology and to compare it with the noise figure of the common source topology. As an experimental proof, fully integrated 60 GHz low noise amplifiers have been… CONTINUE READING
