The design of a narrow-band cascode CMOS inductive source-degenerated low noise amplifier (LNA) for 866 MHz UHF RFID reader is presented. Compared to other previously reported narrow-band LNA designs, in this paper the finite effect has been considered to improve the nanometric design, achieving simultaneous impedance and minimum noise matching at a very low power drain of 850 from a 0.7 V supply voltage. The LNA was fabricated using the IBM 130 nm CMOS process delivering a forward power gain
