A 1.9 GHz low noise amplifier has been designed in a standard CMOS .35 micron process. The amplifier provides a gain of 21 dB with a noise figure only 1.4 dB while drawing 6.5 mW from a 1.5 V supply. Design process and simulation results are presented in this paper. The LNA design with variable bias is suitable for the proposed smart receiver.
