A highly integrated direct conversion receiver for cellular code division multiple access (CDMA) and GPS applications is successfully developed using a 0.5-μm SiGe BiCMOS technology. The receiver consists of two low-noise amplifiers (LNAs), a dual-band mixer, two voltage-controlled oscillators (VCOs), a local-oscillator signal generation block, and channel filters. The CDMA LNA achieves a noise figure of 1.3 dB, an input-referred third-order intercept point (IIP3) of 10.9 dBm, and a gain of 15.3 dB with a current consumption of 9.8 mA in the high-gain mode. The mixer for the CDMA mode achieves an uncalibrated input-referred second-order intercept point of 53.7 dBm, an IIP3 of 6.4 dBm, a noise figure of 7.2 dB and a voltage gain of 37.2 dB. The phase noise of the CDMA VCO is approximately -133 dBc/Hz at a 900-kHz offset from a 1.762-GHz operating frequency. It exceeds all the CDMA requirements when tested on a handset.
