Abstract

The recent popularity of RFID tags has generatedresearch for accompanying miniature, low-power reader circuits.This work illustrates the design of RF complementary metaloxide-semiconductor (CMOS) process compatible spiralinductors. Several simulators such as AWR Microwave Office®, SONNET®, and finite element program CST were used toprovide its S21 and S31 transmission characteristics, approximateand finalized design layout values respectively. This designutilized Silterra 0.18 μm RF-CMOS technology processparameters. Simulation results indicate that inductors corediameters must be adequately large (more than 100 μm) toensure high quality factor characteristics and its conductorspacing should be minimal to obtain larger per unit areainductive value. The proposed design methodology optimizes theconductor width of inductors to allow alignment of the peakquality factor with the circuit's operating frequency, therebyenhancing the input/output matching characteristics and Sparameterextraction in the GHz region.
