A 1.5 GHz low noise amplifier for a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver has been implemented in a 0.6 /spl mu/m CMOS process. This amplifier provides a forward gain of 22 dB with a noise figure of only 3.5 dB while drawing 30 mW from a 1.5 V supply. To the authors' knowledge, this represents the lowest noise figure reported to date for a CMOS amplifier operating above 1 GHz.
