In this paper a low power, inductor-less gm-boosted LNA architecture suitable for biomedical implants in the MICS band (402-405 MHz) together with an overview of some traditional architectures for designing LNAs are presented. These architectures are compared in terms of suitability for biomedical implants based on a conventional figure of merit (FOM) and… CONTINUE READING
