A 28-GHz transceiver front-end is implemented in 22-nm FD-SOI technology for 5G communication. The front-end consists of a PA and an LNA, including the functionality of T/R switching. The OP1dB, PAEmax and PAE6dB of the PA are 11.2 dBm, 33.8% and 13.1%, respectively. The NF, gain, and power consumption of the LNA are 4 dB, 17 dB, and 14.5 mW, respectively.
