CMOS Low Noise Amplifiers for 1.575 GHz GPS Applications
The demand on current GPS applications forces the design of high performance, low cost L1 frequency band (1.575GHz center frequency) receivers. Galileo/GPS combined system is under development and this will allow the realization of much higher precision applications. On the other hand, the Assisted GPS (A-GPS) concept necessitates the integration of GPS receiver into the mobile phone requiring improvement in receiver sensitivity, linearity and power consumption. The demand is more intensive on highly integrated, compact solutions.
