Abstract


This research present a design of a higher  gain (66.38dB) for PHEMT LNA  using an inductive drain feedback technique for wireless application at 5.8GHz. The amplifier it is implemented using PHEMT FHX76LP transistor devices.  The designed circuit is simulated with  Ansoft Designer SV.  The LNA was designed using  T-network as a matching technique was used at the input and output terminal,  inductive generation to the source and an inductive drain feedback. The  low noise amplifier (LNA) using lumped-component provides a noise figure 0.64 dB and a gain (S21) of 68.94 dB. The output reflection (S22), input reflection (S11) and return loss (S12) are -17.37 dB, -15.77 dB and -88.39 dB respectively. The measurement shows the  stability was at  4.54 and 3-dB bandwidth of 1.72 GHz. While, the  low noise amplifier (LNA) using  Murata manufactured component provides a noise figure 0.60 dB and a gain (S21) of 66.38 dB. The output reflection (S22), input reflection (S11) and return loss (S12) are -13.88 dB, -12.41 dB and -89.90 dB respectively. The measurement shows the  stability was at  6.81 and 3-dB bandwidth of 1.70 GHz. The input sensitivity more than -80 dBm  exceeded the standards required by IEEE 802.16.
