Paper Abstract

Results are reported on the high-frequency characteristics of low threshold MOSFET in an LNA (low noise amplifier) for 900 MHz applications. It is shown that an excellent noise figure NF of 1.2 dB, together with good input related IP3 equals 11 dBm and power gain Ap equals 13 dB, can be obtained in a 3.3 V CMOS 0.6 micrometer process. NFmin showed to be constant over a wide current range, making it possible to achieve optimum total LNA performance.
