Abstract : This Paper focuses on improving the Harmonic Rejection Ratio (HRR) and the linearity of 3-Path 8-Phase harmonic rejection mixer with modified transconductance stage. The mixer core incorporates a feed-forward compensation technique in the transconductance stage for improving the linearity of the mixer with an Third order Input Intercept Point (IIP3) of 14 dBm. The Harmonic Rejection Mixer (HRM) using mixer cores with modified transconductance stage was designed using 90 nm CMOS process technology and the simulation results shows an improvement of IIP3 point of more than 25 dBm. A conversion gain of 12–4 dB was observed over the frequency range of 2.26–2.8 GHz (540 MHz bandwidth). Maximum third order HRR (HRR3) of 45 dB and fifth order HRR (HRR5) of 55 dB was observed on sweeping the RF power from -30 to 10 dBm. Deviations on the performance of the HRM was found to be very minimal on PVT variation.
