This paper presents the design and performance analysis of low-noise and low-power 0.35µm SiGe UWB amplifiers for 3.1-10.6GHz radio receivers, which have been approved by the US Federal Communications Commission on Feb. 14, 2002. Particularly, common-gate amplifiers show good characteristics that are controllable with a single current source. These amplifiers give typical gain of 10.2dB, which is flat to within ±0.3dB variation over 3.1-10.6GHz. The noise figure achieved is about 5.1 dB and power dissipation is 5.6mW under a power supply of ±1.5V. The results stand high when compared to recently published figures.
