A major contributor to degraded input-referred second-order intercept point (IIP2) in integrated RF systems-on-chips is local oscillator (LO) leakage to the input of RF circuits. In this brief, we present a digital calibration technique for improving IIP2 by injecting controlled dc offset at the mixer output through a three-port network of switched-capacitor filters. The dc offset at mixer output gets up-converted to LO frequency at the input of RF circuits due to poor reverse isolation of the… CONTINUE READING
