A low-power sub-harmonic receiver front-end covering an RF frequency range of 18-21GHz with a converted IF range of 50-1550 MHz is demonstrated. The transformer-based inductive coupled resonators at the input of low-noise amplifier provide a wideband signal transformation and impedance matching effectively. Also, several circuit techniques such as GM boosted and 3D-inductors are employed for the LNA and mixer to achieve high circuit performance. The proposed receiver is fabricated using 0.18-μm… CONTINUE READING
