Abstract- This paper presents a general weak nonlinearity model that can be used to model, analyze and describe the distortion behavior of various low noise amplifier topologies in both narrowband and wideband applications. Represented by compact closed-form expressions our model can be easily utilized by both circuit designers and LNA design automation algorithms.
Simulations for three LNA topologies at different operating
conditions show that the model describes IM components with an error lower than 0.1% and a one order of magnitude faster
response time. The model also indicates that for narrowband
IM2@w1-w2 all the nonlinear capacitances can be neglected while for narrowband IM3 the nonlinear capacitances at the drainterminal can be neglected.
