In this paper, we present and discuss several CMOS-based radio-frequency integrated circuits than can be used for wireless or wired applications. In particular, we describing five types of circuits. Two types of mixers are discussed, one targeting low-voltage (0.8V) applications and another for low phase noise direct conversion receivers. Then two designs of ultra-wideband low noise amplifiers (LNAs) using the cascade topology and special matching and filtering circuits are described. The LNAs were designed with a focus on lowvoltage (0.8V) applications The performance of an integrated low-power receiver front-end is then discussed. Finally, the design of a transimpedance amplifier suitable for optical communication receivers, detailed results of bit-error-rate versus input power and the performance of a printed-circuit board based low-cost optical transmitter is presented and discussed.
