Summary: 
This paper presents a multi-band WCDMA receiver consisting of a multi-band low noise amplifier (LNA), a multi-band mixer and an inter-stage tunable notch filter. The notch filter is used to suppress Tx leakage, and 0.8–1.5 GHz (66%) of tuning range is achieved. The receiver achieves 33 and 30 dB conversion gain, 6.4 and 8 dB NF, 50 and 35.5 dBm IIP2, and -6 and -4.7 dBm IIP3 at 0.8 and 1.5 GHz, respectively. The power consumption is 121 mW from a 1.8-V power supply. The receiver is implemented in a 0.18-µm CMOS process.
