A broadband 60-GHz receiver implemented in a 65-nm baseline CMOS technology is presented. A millimeter-wave front-end, including a single-ended low noise amplifier and a balanced resistive mixer, an IF-stage and an analog baseband circuit with an analog-to-digital converter are integrated on a single chip. The receiver achieves a measured 7.0-dB noise figure at 60 GHz and the voltage gain can be controlled between 45 to 79 dB. The measured 1-dB input compression point is -38.5 dBm.
