A 20-GHz CMOS low-noise amplifier (LNA) fabricated with the 0.18 μm process is presented. This two-stage cascaded common source LNA exhibits low power consumption with a satisfying performance such as overall gain and noise figure (NF). The measurement is performed on-wafer. The 20-GHz LNA has demonstrated a 9.3 dB gain, a 4.4 dB NF, a -10 dBm input P1db and a 0.65 dBm IIP3. The power consumption is 9.6 mW from a 1.2 V power supply.
