A novel multi -band LNA, which can switch between standards GSM800MHz/GSM1.8GHz or GSM800MHz/WCDMA2.1GHz, is presented. The LNA provides 22.4dB gain at 800MHz and 14.1 dB at 1.8GHz. The device selects between GSM1.8GHz/WCDMA2.1GHz by means of a simple PMOS switch. The LNA is fabricated in 0.18μm technology using only CMOS transistors. Post-Layout simulation results indicate a Noise Figure below 1.6dB in all bands while drawing 8.5mA from a 1.8V power supply. To save die area, the input matching circuit is partially off-chip.
