A 1.9GHz direct conversion receiver(DCR) chip which integrates an LNA, I/Q mixers(MIX), active lowpass filters(LDF) and variable gain amplifiers(VGA) was fabricated. Because the DCR for QPSK modulation systems is sensitive to the 2nd-order nonlinearity, linearization techniques are adopted in MIX and LPF. The DCR chip was fabricated using a BiCMOS process, and the die size is 5.1 mm by 5.1mm. The chip can operate from 2.7 V supply voltage and consumes 165mW when all the functions are activated. Suppression of local signal radiation and the 2nd-order distortion indicate the feasibility of Si-based DCR for QPSK modulation systems such as PHS.
