By using a well-known device model, and taking into account the limitations of on-chip passive elements, a two-stage LNA was designed with excellent mm-wave performance.
These four unconventional PLL configurations may be unfamiliar to many high-frequency engineers, but they can add a great deal of flexibility to a synthesizer bag of design tricks.
Using advanced wideband PLL architectures, a low-cost, fast-switching voltage-controlled ocscillator (VCO) offers an excellent alternative to commonly used YIG oscillators for the majority of practical applications.
Gunn oscillators with varactor tuning in series and parallel circuit configurations provide wide tuning bandwidths at millimeter-wave frequencies for a variety of applications.
Compared to a conventional RFID system, active RFID tags can be implemented within a ZigBee mesh network with added flexibility and significant power savings.
Superharmonic capacitive coupling supports the design of a folded-type quadrature LC oscillator by maintaining low noise and low power consumption.
