A 2.4 GHz Ultra-Low-Power Low-Noise-Amplifier
MetadataShow full item record
In this thesis different aspects of general low power design and LNA-design have been studied. A new architecture for an ultra low power LNA is proposed and simple simulation results are presented. Simulations show that there should be possible to design a 2.4 GHz LNA that works sufficiently at 200 µA. The proposed architecture achieved a voltage gain over 20 dB from 2.32 to 2.5 GHz, a noise figure of 4.65 dB, IIP3 of -15.45 dBm and a input match of -9.5 dB. There is still a lot of work do and many simulations to perform before one can inconclusively conclude that the proposed architecture is a feasible solution, although the results generated in this thesis seem promising.
