A 60-GHz down-converting dual-gate mixer, fabricated in the 0.13-μm CMOS process, for WPAN applications is presented. The mixer utilizes the dual-gate topology and adds a buffer to avoid loading effects. A good agreement between simulation and measurements is observed. The mixer exhibits a conversion loss of 2.7 dB, input 1-dB compression point of -8 dBm at RF of 60 GHz, IF of 5 GHz and LO power of 0 dBm. The total power consumption is 16.8 mW, 7.2 mW for the core mixer and 9.6 mW for the buffer.
