Abstract—A CMOS transceiver fully compliant with IEEE 802.11a in the unlicensed national information infrastructure (UNII) band (5.15–5.35 GHz) achieves a receiver sensitivity of 5 dBm for 64-QAM (quadrature amplitude modulation) with an error vector magnitude (EVM) of 29.3 dB. A single-sideband mixing technique for local-oscillator signal generation avoids frequency pulling. Realized in 0.18- m CMOS and operating from 1.8-V power supply, the design consumes 171 mW in receive mode and 135 mW in transmit mode while occupying less than 13 mm2. Index Terms—CMOS transceiver, IEEE 802.11a, orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM), wireless local-area network (WLAN). I
