Abstract


ABSTRACT:

 

Low Noise Amplifier (LNA) functions important role in receiver designs. In, microwave receiver LNA circuit plays important role in quality factor of receiver. At radio frequency range, trade-off characteristics like gain, noise figure, stability, power consumption and complexity forces designer for various circuit’s simulation for optimizing those. An LNA design presents a considerable challenge because of its simultaneous requirement for high gain, low noise figure, good input and output matching and unconditional stability at the lowest possible current draw from the amplifier. For short range and high data rate wireless applications UWB technology offers a promising solution to the radio frequency. As LNA is most important block included in the UWB front-end RF receiver, we focused this paper on review of LNA design using CMOS technique.
