In this paper, the design and analysis of a 28 GHz CMOS Low noise differential amplifier is discussed. A current reuse technique is used to minimize power consumption by stacking two common source amplifiers. The proposed LNA is designed in a 65 nm RF CMOS process to achieve an output matched voltage gain of 18.5 dB and minimum Noise figure(NF) of 4.6 dB. The LNA consumes 10 mW from a 1.2 V power supply and exhibits an input-referred 1dB compression point of -16.1 dBm. The LNA is designed using transmission lines, inductors, high-Q capacitors, and a transformer, and occupies a total area of only 0.33 mm2 © 2020 IEEE
