Although some configurations were already mentioned in Chap. 5 (mostly, feedback configurations), the techniques to turn narrowband LNAs into broadband LNAs are the topic of this chapter. The chapter opens with a discussion of some popular RF broadband topologies, their general circuit diagrams and their advantages and disadvantages. Where applicable, a mathematical explanation of the circuit operation are given, before extending the circuit operation into the millimeter-wave domain with its unique challenges (which were already discussed in Chap. 5 and are still applicable). Broadband matching techniques are also discussed. Finally, the chapter ends with some more examples of broadband topologies.
