A Q-enhanced LC bandpass filter using CAIRO
In this paper, we present a systematic design procedure for Q-enhanced integrated LC filters, which does not require any simulations and is thus suitable for design automation. The design procedure has been described in the CAIRO analog design environment, containing the BSIM3v3 models of the MOS transistors. Precise estimations of the quality factor and the resonance frequency were made possible by adding the integrated inductance pi-model into the design environment. Several design examples of 2.4 GHz Q-enhanced LC filters are given in a 0.13 um CMOS process.
