LOVELY THAKUR, VIPUL AGARWAL, GURPREET SINGH

Abstract


 

In this paper a 1GHz to 10 GHz Low Noise Amplifier (LNA) with good gain and  the  two stages including the core circuit of the first stage with common source (CS) amplifier LC filter is used for  input matching and provides resonant frequency designed using 0.18 µm CMOS technology . Therefore, we proposed a wideband input network with  band pass  capability UWB LNA . It uses a CMOS amplifier with 0.18 µm technology. We have achieved A good power gain and minimum noise figure for the core LNA. The proposed low power LNA is shown in Figure . 


Keywords


Low-noise amplifier (LNA), Complementary metal–oxide semiconductor (CMOS), band pass , ultra wideband (UWB).
