An RF sampling front-end is presented in this paper. The front-end specifications are defined using the GSM-1800 requirements. The implementation of the front-end has been concentrated on a sampler, which is expected to be the most critical block. A linearized sampler is proposed to achieve the high linearity specifications. The sampler enables sampling of a wide band signal at high frequencies. lt is designed in 0.35-μm CMOS process. The simulation results proves, that the sampler achieves high linearity up to carrier frequency. To clock the linearized sampler a low-jitter clock path is presented. lt reduces the clock path sensitivity to power supply variations and protects the clock from additional on-chip jitter.
