This paper presents the design and analysis of low flicker-noise RF mixers in a 0.18-mum CMOS process for C-band direct-conversion receivers. The low flicker-noise mixers are implemented by incorporating a double-balanced Gilbert-type configuration, the RF leakageless current bleeding technique, and the resonating technique for the tail capacitance. First, a double-balanced Gilbert-type mixer using the current bleeding technique has been fabricated and measured for lowering flicker corner… CONTINUE READING
