The expanding market for wireless communica- tion systems has resulted in a customer demand for portable radio products that also meet the practical requirements of reduced cost, size, and power con- sumption. One area of technology that is being looked into as part ofthe solution to this problem is to design and implement a direct conversion receiver IC that can be used in both low tier and high tier product lines. The most stringent technical specifi- cations for this IC are going to be set by the high tier, spectrum efficient linear systems. Mixers and amplifiers with third-order intercept points on the order of + 10 dBm will be needed to prevent unwanted IM interference.
