A 0.7 - 3.7 GHz Six Phase Receiver Front-End With Third Order Harmonic Rejection

Abstract
This paper presents a highly linear receiver frontend

operating from 700 MHz to 3.7 GHz with 3rd order harmonic

rejection. It consists of a complementary low noise transconductance

amplifier with capacitive cross coupling and negative gm

current sources, a six phase current-mode passive mixer, and

baseband transimpedance amplifiers providing programmable

gain. The circuit has been fabricated in 65 nm CMOS technology

with an active area of just 0.09 mm2. It consumes 7.2 mA,

excluding the six phase local oscillator generation, from a 1.2 V

supply, achieving a third order harmonic rejection of 40 dB, and

a noise figure of 3 to 4.5 dB at 52 dB gain. The... (More)
