2020 2020 IEEE Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits Symposium (RFIC)  
In the receiver, both the RF path and the baseband path provide variable gain for a wider dynamic range. The LNA employs dual-coupling transformer for low noise figure and wideband input matching.  ...  However, for RFIC designers, the situation is even more challenging than before. RF performance gain from scaling has slowed down.  ...  The design is verified with digitally-modulated signals with a bandwidth of up to 160 MHz at a carrier frequency of 2 GHz.  ...
