Abstract This paper presents a Low Noise Amplifier operating on 2.4GHz ISM Band Application. An active inductor is implemented as its tuning load which is designed in study [9] and the core low noise amplifier circuit is a cascoded common-source amplifier. To increase gain and matching parameters, two stages of buffer were used. The amplifier is simulated using Synopsys Custom Designer with 1.2V supply in 65nm CMOS technology process. The design exhibits a gain of 19.5dB, a minimum noise figure of 3.91dB and return losses S11 of -20.1dB and S22 of -32.4dB over the desired frequency of 2.4GHz.
