Design of Low Power Low Noise Amplifier Using 180nmTechnology
CMOS Low Noise Amplifier (LNA) for low power wireless application is presented. Low noise amplifier is the most important key component in radio receiver. The inductive source degeneration LNA is designed to achieve the goal of low power, low noise and a high gain. The authors use 180nm technology in cadence virtuoso tool to design this LNA. The designed LNA delivers the power gain of 21.18dB, minimum noise figure of 55mdB and power consumption of 0.19mW.
