This letter presents a 5.7 GHz 0.18 μm CMOS gain-controlled differential LNA for an IEEE 802.11a WLAN application. The differential LNA, fabricated with the 0.18 μm 1P6M standard CMOS process, uses a current-reuse technology to increase linear gain and save power consumption. The circuit measurement is performed using an FR-4 PCB test fixture. The LNA exhibits a noise figure of 3.7 dB, linear gain of 12.5 dB, P/sub 1dB/ of -11 dBm, and gain tuning range of 6.9 dB. The power consumption is 14.4 mW at VDD=1.8 V.
