Integrated Multilayered On-Chip Inductors for Compact CMOS RFICs and Their Use in a Miniature Distributed Low-Noise-Amplifier Design for Ultra-Wideband Applications


A novel multilayered vertically integrated inductor structure is developed for miniature CMOS RF integrated circuits, and its properties are investigated. The effect of mutual inductance both within and between adjacent multilayer inductors is also studied. A distributed low noise amplifier is designed by incorporating this novel inductor structure in a… (More)
