Systems, Methods And Apparatuses For High Power Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) Antenna Switches Using Body Switching And External Component In Multi-stacking Structure
MetadataShow full item record
Embodiments of the invention may provide for a CMOS antenna switch, which may be referred to as a CMOS SPDT switch. The CMOS antenna switch may operate at a plurality of frequencies, perhaps around 900 MHz, 1.9 GHz and 2.1 GHz according to an embodiment of the invention. The CMOS antenna switch may include both a receiver switch and a transmit switch. The receiver switch may utilize a multi-stack transistor with body substrate switching and attachment of external capacitor between drain and gate to block high power signals from the transmit path as well as to maintain low insertion loss at the receiver path. Exemplary embodiments of the CMOS antenna switch may provide for 38 dBm P 0.1 dB at multi bands (e.g., 900 MHz, 1.8 GHz, and 2.1 GHz). In addition, -60 dBc second and third harmonic performance up to 30 dBm input, may be obtained according to example embodiments of the invention.
