Low-power 5 GHz LNA and VCO in 90 nm RF CMOS

FREE-DOWNLOAD D Linten, L Aspemyr, W Jeamsaksiri… – VLSI Circuits,
Abstract The potential of 90 nm CMOS technology for low-power RF front-ends is demonstrated
with fully integrated low- voltage Low-Noise Amplifiers (LNA) and Voltage- Controlled Oscillators
(VCO). The 5.5 GHz LNA draws 3.5 mA from a 0.6 V supply with a measured power gain .
