This paper describes a single-ended five-stage CMOS distributed amplifier employing m-derived filter sections in the artificial transmission lines. The distributed amplifier exhibits a measured pass-band gain of 8.8 + 1 dB for a 5 V rail, and a bandwidth of 45 MHz to 29.5 GHz with a unity gain bandwidth of 32.5 GHz. The die size is 0.85 x 1.0 mm2. The amplifier exhibits a peak-to-peak output voltage of 2.4 V. This amplifier is suitable for use in communication systems.
