A 2.4 GHz 0.13 µm CMOS transceiver LSI, supporting Bluetooth V2.1+enhanced data rate (EDR) standard, has achieved a high reception sensitivity and high-quality transmission signals between -40 and +90. A low-IF receiver and direct-conversion transmitter architecture are employed. A temperature compensated receiver chain including a low-noise amplifier accomplishes a sensitivity of -90 dBm at frequency shift keying modulation even in the worst environmental condition. Design optimization of phase noise in a local oscillator and linearity of a power amplifier improves transmission signals and enables them to meet Bluetooth radio specifications. Fabrication in scaled 0.13 µm CMOS and operation at a low supply voltage of 1.5 V result in small area and low power consumption.
