Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


A low noise wideband amplifier using SiGe HBT technology for the receiver System-on-a-Chip application is reported. The fabricated amplifier chip has a gain of 15 dB across 22 GHz bandwidth, noise figure of S dB, and output third-order Intermodulation product (OIP3) of 16.5 dBm, while dissipating a dc power of 72 mW for the operation. Measured high frequency, noise and linearity performances are compared with Cadence's Spectre's simulation with layout parasitics. Excellent agreement is observed for ultra-low power amplifier's measured and simulated results.
