The article offers information on the design of a low-voltage ultrawideband (UWB) Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) Mixer. It is noted that mixer is a crucial component that performs frequency conversion in wireless transceivers and it is beneficial for integrated-circuit (IC) applications. It is noted that the CMOS downconversion mixer maintains flat conversion gain across its full frequency range by employing bulk-injection and forward-body-bias techniques.
