A cascode inductive source degeneration LNA is presented in this paper which is designed using UMC 0.18 μm CMOS technology. At the operating frequency of 6.5 GHz, this LNA provides very low noise figure and high gain. The proposed LNA exhibits a very low noise figure of 0.88 dB, minimum noise figure of 0.65 dB, and a high gain of S21 of 14.42 dB with a power consumption of 5.22 mW from 1.8 V supply.
