In this paper, a modified front-end receiver configuration, which consists of an LNA and mixer suitable for zero-IF or low-IF receivers, is presented. The idea is to achieve a better linearity for receivers by combining circuit and system level solutions. Three circuit topologies, two in bipolar and one in CMOS technology, are presented in this paper with their simulation results. One of the bipolar topologies has been implemented and measurement results are presented. An IIP3 of up to +0.6 dBm of a combined bipolar LNA and mixer is achieved, depending on frequency of interest and with an acceptable noise figure performance at a current consumption of less than 13 mA from 5 V supply voltage in one circuit and 3 V supply voltage in the other one. An IIP3 up to +5 dBm is achieved for the CMOS topology at a lower overall gain and acceptable noise figure (14.4 mA and 3 V). All circuits presented in this paper are wideband circuits, suitable for area-efficient multiband receivers.
