A low-noise ultrawideband CMOS mixer circuit for the down conversion of a K-band signal is presented. A bleeding path gm-boosting technique is proposed, which reduces the effect of noise sources of the proposed mixer. The measurement results show that the minimum noise figure is 3.61 dB at 24 GHz when consuming 2.6 mW at a 1.5-V supply voltage. The results also show a conversion gain of... View full abstract»

This brief presents the design guidelines of LNAs under low-supply-voltage condition with respect to linearity and demonstrates an LNA that has excellent performance even with an extremely low supply voltage. Under a low supply voltage, the drain conductance nonlinearity, which can be ignored in a high supply voltage, is important, as well as the transconductance nonlinearity. Therefore, this brie...

A 96-GHz CMOS oscillator is demonstrated in this brief with the use of a high-Q metamaterial resonator. The proposed metamaterial resonator is constructed by a differential transmission line (T-line) loaded with complementary split-ring resonator engraved on the T-line. A negative real part of permittivity, i.e., , is observed near the resonance frequency, which introduces a sharp stopband and, th... View full abstract»

| | PDF (305 KB) | HTML

The effect of frequency modulation (FM) on the phase noise spectrum of a charge pump phase-locked loop (PLL) for frequency-modulated continuous-wave (FMCW) radar is investigated. The static phase error is calculated as a function of frequency ramp slope and basic PLL design parameters. The phase noise spectrum under FM is deduced from the spectrum in the steady state. Design guidelines for integra... View full abstract»

| | PDF (746 KB) | HTML

A semidigital Gm-based amplifier is proposed for a low-power pipelined analog-to-digital converter (ADC). The amplifier performs a class-AB operation by smoothly changing between a comparator-like semidigital driver and a continuous-time high-gain amplifier according to the input voltage difference. A 10-bit pipelined ADC with 2.5-bit/stage architecture is implemented in a 0.13- CMOS. The ADC cons... View full abstract»

| | PDF (387 KB) | HTML

In this brief, we analyze the thermal noise in a switched-capacitor (SC) amplifier with input offset cancellation. We quantify the increase in thermal noise due to the extra phase required for offset sampling. We show that this noise penalty increases with the SC amplifier gain. A closed-form expression is obtained for the output RMS noise voltage for the special case where the amplifier is design... View full abstract»

This paper proposes a two-phase self-assisted zero-voltage switching (ZVS) converter suitable for fully monolithic implementation. The proposed topology utilizes an auxiliary inductor connected between the two branches of a two-phase converter to achieve ZVS conditions. The proposed converter helps reduce the output voltage ripples of the standard ZVS topology. Furthermore, the auxiliary inductor ... View full abstract»

In this brief, we present how parallel-interleaved addresses generated by a quadratic permutation polynomial (QPP) interleaver are related to each other and propose a low-complexity parallel QPP interleaver based on the relationship. While a conventional parallel turbo decoder employs a number of interleavers as many as the parallel factor, the proposed method, which benefits from the arithmetic r... View full abstract»

Braess's paradox shows a counterintuitive scenario where more resources may cause worse traffic performance when all users pursue their personal optimum. Previous study on this topic mainly focused on the specific traffic volume to show the existence of such a paradox. For real-world complex communication networks, on the contrary, the traffic volume changes from time to time. Therefore, it is imp... View full abstract»
