Design and Analysis of Novel Linearization Technique of Cascode Cell in a 60-GHz CMOS Demodulator

Abstract

CMOS cascode device pairs are widely used in many applications. To improve the linearity of the cascode amplification cell while maintaining reasonable gain, a new technique, called splitting cascode, is proposed in this paper. The original cascode is split into two sub-cells to investigate the linearity behavior. With this technique, the third-order… (More)
