A fully integrated WiMedia compliant UWB transceiver supporting band groups 1 to 6 (3.168 GHz to 10.560 GHz), implemented in 0.13 μm SiGe BiCMOS technology will be presented. The transceiver is packaged in a small 40 pin 5 mm ×,5 mm micro lead frame (MLF) package and includes a broadband T/R switch, RF balun and all PLL loop filter components. The receiver has a NF of 4.5 dB to 5.8 dB and a dynamic range of more than 50 dB. The transmitter meets US and international transmit mask requirements.
