In this paper, a low-power 2.4 GHz front-end for sensor network application (IEEE 802.15.4 LR-WPAN) is designed in a 0.18 um CMOS process. A power supply circuit with a novel temperature-compensation scheme is presented. The simulation and measurement results show that the front-end (LNA, Mixer) can achieve a voltage gain of 35.3 dB and a noise figure(NF) of 3.1 dB while consuming 5.04 mW (LNA: 2.16 mW, Mixer: 2.88 mW) of power at $27^{circ}C$. The NF includes the loss of BALUN and BPF. The low-IF architecture is used. The voltage gain, noise figure and third-order intercept point (IIP3) variations over -45$^{circ}C$ to 85$^{circ}C$ are less than 0.2 dB, 0.25 dB and 1.5 dB, respectively.
Key words: Front-End, Temperature Compensation
