A power-scalable reconfigurable filter with in-phase/quadrature (I/Q) imbalance calibration for a multimode Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) receiver is presented. The filter is reconfigurable as either a fifth-order complex bandpass filter exhibiting a tunable intermediate frequency (4.092, 6.138, 10.23, 12.296, 13.29, 18.4, and 20.442 MHz) and bandwidth (2.2, 4.2, 8, 10, and 18 MHz) or a third-order low-pass filter with tunable bandwidth (5 and 9 MHz). A flexible current-reuse operational amplifier with a power-scaling technique is proposed to lower the power consumption, and the image-rejection ratio is improved by almost 20 dB by introducing an I/Q imbalance calibration circuit before the filter. The filter, which was implemented in 65-nm CMOS, consumes 2.9-19.5 mW in different modes, with the I/Q calibration circuit consuming 0.9 mW.
