This letter presents the design of a wideband millimeter-wave (mm-wave) low-noise amplifier (LNA) in a 28-nm FDSOI CMOS technology. Having a total power consumption of 38.2 mW, the LNA provides gain over 12 dB from 53 to 117 GHz, and has a measured NF of 6 dB from 75 to 105 GHz. To the author's best knowledge, the presented LNA achieves the lowest NF with widest bandwidth among previously presented wideband CMOS LNAs operating in the W-band.
