In this work, a 3.5 GHz RF Transmitter and Successive Approximation ADC design has been presented. The transmitter serves as an intermediate block which translates 350 MHz signal into 3.5 GHz signal. This signal is applied to 6-40 GHz wideband transmitter. The emphasis is on the design of Up conversion Mixer with high linearity, low noise and moderate image rejection performance. The successive approximation analog to digital converter was designed as a part of feedback loop control, which consists of a sensor circuit to detect the temperature changes in a power amplifier and the ADC to convert the sensor output to digital data. The data is used to determine the necessary control signals to restore the performance of the power amplifier. The circuits have been designed and implemented in ST Microelectronics CMOS 90nm process.
