Several monolithic integrated circuits have been developed to make a 30-GHz receiver. The receiver components include a low-noise amplifier, an IF amplifier, a mixer, and a phase shifter. The LNA has a 7-dB noise figure with over 17 dB of associated gain. The IF amplifier has a 13-dB gain with a 30-dB control range. The mixer has a conversion loss of 10.5 dB. The phase shifter has a 180° phase shift control and a minimum insertion loss of 1.6 dB.
