Abstract

This chapter discusses low-voltage conventional receiver front-end circuits in the Radio-Frequency (RF) range, namely low-noise amplifiers (LNAs) and mixers, expanding on previous work [25, 26, 100–102]. For our study, we chose a future standard CMOS technology nanoscale node, expected by The International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors [1] to have a supply voltage of 0.5 V, and a transistor threshold voltage of about 200 mV. In the first part of this chapter we consider design of stand-alone communication circuits . Then, we present design and measured results of a 900 MHz integrated receiver front end.
