A 60GHz-band, 2-stage low-noise amplifier with 4-6.5dB measured noise figure (50Ω) and over 9GHz bandwidth is described. Peak gain measured from single-ended input to differential outputs is 13.9dB, and input referred P-ldB and IIP3 are -18dBm and -9.8dBm, respectively. Input return loss exceeds 10dB across 50-67GHz. Implemented in 130nm SiGe-BiCMOS, the 380×240μm2 IC consumes 6.8mA from a 2V supply.
