Abstract

A combination low noise amplifier (LNA) and diversity switch (diversity LNA) is presented, allowing the switching between two spatially separated antennas to improve the received SNR in a multipath environment. This 60GHz diversity LNA has a simulated gain of 14.3dB and noise figure of 8.9dB. It is suitable for diversity of reception implementation for a complete system-on-chip (SOC) in the 60GHz band.
