Abstract:

The objective of the project is the design of an L-band filter and a Ka filter in a standard 0.13 micron CMOS process. Four different microwave filters have been designed and tested in a standard 0.13 micron CMOS process. For the first filter a new effective method to suppress the common-mode in a purely passive CMOS L-band filter is presented. For the second filter a 7-stage L-band bandpass filter using active series and shunt inductors is demonstrated in a standard 0.13 micron CMOS process. For the third filter a Ka band filter in 0.13 micron CMOS is presented. The filter with improved selectivity consists of BCCPS, CPS sections and MIM capacitors. For the fourth filter a CMOS Ka-band lumped element DBR filter is presented utilizing CMOS spiral inductors and MIM capacitors.
