3.1   INTRODUCTION

Over the past decade SiGe BiCMOS has evolved into a dominant technology for the implementation of radio frequency (RF) circuits. By providing performance, power consumption, and noise advantages over standard complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) transistor technology while leveraging the same manufacturing infrastructure, SiGe BiCMOS technologies can offer a cost-effective solution ...
