An Ultra WideBand (UWB) CMOS Low Noise Amplifier (LNA) with shunt series peaking is proposed with a cascode stage as a core amplifier. A Common Gate (CG) stage is used to achieve a broad band input matching with low power consumption while a buffer is used to obtain the output matching. Shunt - series peaking technique is used to enhance the bandwidth while current reuse technique is used to increase the gain without increasing the power consumption. The proposed LNA is designed with 90 nm CMOS technology and its performance is analyzed using agilent's ADS simulator.
