in this paper, a CMOS down-conversion mixer for UWB applications is presented. The mixer circuit is designed by using a TSMC 0.18um RF CMOS technology, working at the 3.1GHz–10.6GHz frequency Range. The core of the mixer has been designed based on Gilbert cell architecture and uses a Current Bleeding method for increasing the linearity, decreasing direct noise and improvement of conversion gain. A wide band matching is used in RF and LO inputs to provide a good match over the entire frequency… CONTINUE READING
