Abstract:


This paper presents a design of mm-wave LNPA which generates a large output power and low noise figure in one stage for a harmonic feedback oscillator block at the candidate of 5G; frequency 26 GHz. The LNPA is designed in the 28 nm UTBB FD-SOI. The benefits of this technology are stated with the effects of body biasing for the mm-wave LNPA. This amplifier is designed using a common source topology. It achieves 14 dBm Psat and 2.5 dB noise figure “NF”.
