Abstract

In this paper, a low-power transformer-based Ku-band receiver front-end is implemented in a 180-nm CMOS technology. The transformer-feedback gain-boosting technique and forward-body-bias technique are employed in three-stage (common gate + 2-stage common source) LNA to achieve a low-power design. A resistive ring mixer is chosen due to its advantage of zero-dc-power. The receiver demonstrates a 4.47-dB conversion gain at IF frequency of 100 MHz while consuming only 7.272 mW.
