RF / MW Integrated Circuit Design

Cover Sistemi has grown a solid experience  in the design of IP of RF and MW circuits on
Silicon integrated-circuits.
Thanks to a deep knowledge of RF / MW design issues and thanks to proven design-flow (along with a strong knowledge of different EDA tools such as Spectre / Cadence / AWR MWO) Cover Sistemi is able to develop custom IPs such as:
•    LNAs (UWB or narrowband)
•    Active and passive down and up-conversion mixers (e.g. Double Balanced Gilbert Cell, Double and Triple Balanced Passive Mixer, High Linearity Mixers)
•    VCOs and PLLs
•    Gm-C Filters
•    IF Amplifiers
•    Non-standard, High performance UWB Pulse Generator (<500ps FWHM) for UWB applications

Cover Sistemi has a  solid experience in the following technologies:
•    0.35um / 0.18um / 90nm / 65nm / 45-40nm
•    BiCMOS 0.35um (SiGe HBTs)
    

Examples of successful  design (silicon proven)
o    UWB TxR for radar applications in BiCMOS SiGe 0.35um:
o    Quadrature pulse generator
o    UWB LNA
o    Down Conversion Mixer
o    IF Amplifier
o    5.8GHz VCO in CMOS 65nm and subsequent porting in CMOS 45nm / 40nm
o    Gm-C in CMOS 65nm and subsequent porting in CMOS 45nm / 40nm
