This article presents the design, implementation and measurement of a 5.7 GHz CMOS LNA for an IEEE 802.11a WLAN receiver. The LNA, fabricated with the 0.18μm 1P6M standard CMOS process, uses a current-reuse technology to increase linear gain and save power consumption. The circuit measurements are performed using an FR-4 PCB test fixture. The fabricated LNA exhibits a linear gain of 11.2 dB, a noise figure of 4.5 dB and an input P1dB of -10 dBm at 5.8 GHz. The power consumption is 14.4 mW at V DD = 1.8 V.
