Abstract

This paper presents the analysis and design of a new low power and highly linear mixer topology based on a newly reported differential derivative superposition method. Volterra series and harmonic balance are employed to investigate its linearisation mechanism and to optimise the design. A prototype mixer has been designed and is being implemented in 0.18μm CMOS technology. Simulation shows this mixer achieves 19.7dBm IIP3 with 10.5dB conversion gain, 13.2dB noise figure at 2.4GHz and only 3.8mW power consumption. This performance is competitive with already reported mixers.
