Abstract: Based on LC-tank folded structure,a mixer with low voltage and high linearity is designed.The mixer with LC-tank folded structure is low voltage structure mixer,Compared with Gilbert mixer,it solve the high voltage and high power loss problem  brought by the stacking of  transconductance level and  switch level,as well as the compromise problem casued by  high transconductance,high linearity and low noise.Using Agilent Corporation’s ADS software,simulation is carried out based on TSMC 0.25 μm,the results show that the working voltage is 1.0 V,RF frequencty is 2.5 GHz,local oscillation frequcncy is 2.25 GHz,intermediate frequency frequency is 250 MHz,conversion gain is 1.080 dB,IIP3point is at 25.441 dBm,signal side-band noise index is 4.683 dB,double side-band noise index is 8.387 dB,the power dissipation is 7.088 mW.

Key words: folded structure, linearity, conversion gain
