|摘要:||A 10 GHz dual-conversion low-IF downconverter using 0.18-mm CMOS technology is demonstrated. The high-frequency quadrature RF and LO(1) signals are generated by broadside-coupled quadrature couplers while a two-section polyphase filter is utilised for the low-frequency LO(2) quadrature signal generation. As a result, the demonstrated downconverter achieves a conversion gain of 7 dB, IP(1dB) of -16 dBm, IIP(3) of 25 dBm and noise figure of 26 dB at a 1.8 V supply. The image-rejection ratio of the first/second image signal is 33/42 dB for IF frequency ranging from 10 to 60 MHz, respectively.|
