A fully integrated 2.45GHz 0.25um CMOS power amplifier
Publikation/Tidskrift/Serie: Proceedings of the 10th IEEE International Conference on Electronics, Circuits and Systems, ICECS 2003.
A fully integrated 0.18um 1P6M CMOS power amplifier using internal frequency doubling is presented. Two chips were measured, one stand-alone PA and one PA with a VCO on the same chip. Since the PA and VCO operate at a different frequency, this configuration is suitable for direct-upconversion or low-IF upconversion since oscillator pulling will be reduced. The maximum output power is 15 dBm, and the maximum drain efficiency is 10.7% at an output operating frequency of 2.4 GHz.
