Stacked Inductors and Transformers

  • Alireza Zolfaghari


Monolithic inductors have found extensive usage in RF CMOS circuits. Despite their relatively low quality factor, Q, such inductors still prove useful in providing gain with minimal voltage headroom and operating as resonators in oscillators. Monolithic transformers have also appeared in CMOS technology [8], allowing new circuit configurations.
