A front-end amplifier for the Ultra Wideband (UWB) system is described. The amplifier has a single-ended input and a differential output, with 16 dB power gain, a flat-gain bandwidth of 2-5.2 GHz, an output 1-dB gain compression point of -8 dBm and a noise figure of 4.7-5.7 dB over the signal bandwidth. The amplifier is implemented in 0.13-μm digital CMOS, occupies 0.4×0.6 mm2, and consumes 38 mW.
