LOW POWER RF SINGLE BALANCED MIXER WITH HIGH CONVERSION GAIN FOR ISM BAND APPLICATIONS

Abstract
This paper involves the design and simulation of a single balanced down conversion mixer from a Gilbert cell mixer using a source degeneration inductor and folded structure in 65nm CMOS Technology. The proposed single balanced mixer operating at a radio frequency (RF) 2.4GHz attain a high conversion gain of 25.39dB, RF to IF isolation value of -22.636dB, third order intercept point (IIP3) of 32dBm, Noise Figure (NF) of 9.236dB at IF port and 1-dB compression point of -18.013dBm. The power consumed by the mixer circuit is 5.5mW with the supply voltage of 0.8V.
