Abstract

The evolution of the mobile telephony is demanding new multi-function terminals (cellular and cordless phones, GPS, pagers) compatible with a variety of standard (GSM, DCS, DECT, CDMA). At the same time the reduction of cost, size and power dissipation is mandatory. All this requires an higher integration level for the RF part, that is presently using a big number of components. This explains the big research effort put in silicon RF circuits particularly in CMOS technology. In this paper the state of the art of CMOS RF circuits is outlined. In particular some results regarding critical building blocks obtained by the STMicroelectronics and Pavia University research team are given. Future evelopments and the progress needed to successfully implement them are also pointed out.
