As the Internet of Things (IOT) is growing rapidly, there is an emerging need to facilitate development of IOT devices in the design cycle while optimized performance is obtained in the field of operation. This paper develops reconfiguration approaches that enable post-production adaptation of circuit performance to enable RF IC re-use across different IOT applications. An adaptable low noise amplifier is designed and fabricated in 130nm CMOS technology to investigate the post-production

This model is used to predict the performance parameters of the device in the field. The estimation error for LNA performance parameters are obtained in the simulation environment as well as chip measurements.
