In this paper design of critical building blocks of a 10 GHz silicon integrated circuit of an FMCW radar transceiver is reported. Specifically, design of VCO and LNA is discussed. The targeted transceiver structure will be world's first, commercially available silicon integrated circuit built in SiGe BiCMOS technology and dedicated for low-power radar applications.
