However, on-chip inductors are large and cannot be ported easily from one process to the next. Due to modern CMOS scaling, inductorless RF design is rapidly becoming possible. In this paper a new methodology for designing the RF frontend necessary for the DVB-SH in a 90 nm CMOS technology based on the use current conveyors (CC) is presented. The RF frontend scheme is composed of a second generation CC (CCII) LNA with asymmetric input and output, an asymmetric to differential converter, and a passive differential mixer followed by two CCII transimpedance amplifiers to obtain a high gain conversion. Measurements show a conversion gain of 20.8 dB, a 14.5 dB noise figure, an input return loss (S11) of −14.3 dB and an output compression point of −3.9 dBm. This combination draws 28.4 mW from a ±1.2 V supply.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/45458||ISSN:||0026-2692||DOI:||10.1016/j.mejo.2015.04.003||Source:||Microelectronics Journal[ISSN 0026-2692],v. 46 (3829), p. 581-587|
