Preface
PrefaceIn recent years, wireless personal area networks (WPANs) have become popular, replacing cables and enabling new consumer applications. Such systems are now dominated by standards such as Bluetooth and Zigbee, which operate in the 2.4 GHz ISM band. In order to improve the data rate to several hundreds of Mb/s with a low power transmission, ultra-wideband (UWB) communications have been proposed.In a classical zero-IF receiver architecture, one of the most challenging components is the low-noise amplifier (LNA). This circuit must have a precise amplification over a wide range of frequencies with a wideband input matching and a low noise contribution. Due to these strict requirements, low-noise amplifiers are usually composed of a large numbers of inductors having a high power consumption.
