This paper describes the design of a 1.9-GHz front-end receiver. The target application of the receiver is the personal communications standard PCS1900. Powered by a 1-V supply, the receiver consists of a low noise amplifier (LNA) and a downconversion mixer. The receiver was fabricated within a 0.5-μm CMOS technology. The LNA features 15 dB of gain and a 1.8-dB noise figure. The mixer exhibits 1.5-dB conversion loss, 12-dB noise figure, and 0 dBm 1 dB-compression point
