Method to Improve the Conversion Gain Flatness of Transformer-Coupled Mixers
A 4-10 GHz, on-chip balun based current commutating mixer is proposed. Tunable resistive feedback is used at the transconductance stage for wideband response, and interlaced stacked transformer is adopted for good balance ...
A Decade-Bandwidth Low-Noise Mixer RFIC with a Distortion-Canceling Output Amplifier
This paper presents a 1-10 GHz low-noise downconvert mixer RFIC suitable for wideband receivers. A switched transconductor mixing core is adopted to reduce noise at high frequencies. By adding a series inductor to the RF ...
Advanced Downconversion Mixers for CMOS Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits
This thesis explores the design of advanced downconversion mixers in CMOS RF integrated circuits. First, a novel switched transconductor mixer with low power, low noise, and ultra-wide bandwidth is proposed. The transconductor ...
