This paper presents a high linearity and low power up-conversion mixer at 5.2 GHz for wireless applications. The design based on Gilbert-cell active double-balanced mixer using derivative superposition method for linearity is proposed in TSMC 0.18-μm CMOS technology. The linearity of the designed mixer is further improved by utilizing source degeneration… CONTINUE READING
