Abstract

A capacitance desensitization technique is proposed for a multiple gated transistors amplifier with source degeneration to relax second-order distortion contribution to a third-order intermodulation distortion (IMD3), as well as an induced-gate noise contribution to noise figure. An extra capacitance, which is added between gate and source nodes of input transistors in a parallel manner, can desensitize the contribution of second-order harmonic feedback to IMD3. The capacitance is useful for optimizing noise figure, as well by controlling the input matching network quality factor (Q), which can desensitize the induced-gate noise contribution to noise figure. The low-noise amplifier is implemented with the proposed technique using 1P6M 0.18- μm CMOS technology for 900-MHz code division multiple access (CDMA) receivers. It shows a third-order intercept point of +9.4 dBm and noise figure of 1.8 dB while consuming 5.5 mW at 1.5 V.
