RF front-end CMOS design for build-in-self-test
Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree)Student thesis
In this master degree work, a digital attenuator and a low noise amplifier (LNA) have been designed and integrated with the RF front-end receiver for IEEE 802.11b Wireless LAN standard. Firstly, the 4-bit digitally controlled attenuator has been designed with theattenuation range of 50 to 80 dB and reflection coefficient less than -25 dB. Next, the single stage wide band low noise amplifier with voltage gain larger than 14 dB and noise figure below 4 dB has been designed to operate at frequency 2.4 GHz. Finally, the integration with a down-conversion mixer has been done and evaluated its performance.
The attenuator and low noise amplifier desired in this thesis have been implemented using standard CMOS 0.35µm technology and validated by the simulation tools Cadence Spectre-RF.
