By utilizing frequency translational resistive feedback, a recently proposed blocker current-cancelling wideband receiver (Lenka and Banerjee in IEEE Trans Very Large Scale Integr Syst 27(5): 993�1006, 2019), tolerates 0-dBm blockers beyond 40 MHz offset with little degradation in performance. However, like most wideband receivers, the architecture is far less tolerant to �harmonic blockers�, that is, blockers located at or around precise integer multiples of the local oscillator frequency. This paper presents an enhanced blocker current-cancelling receiver that prevents harmonic blockers from undergoing large gain and thus boosts the receiver�s resilience to such blockers. Implemented in a 22-nm CMOS process, the RX can tolerate up to - 1 dBm harmonic blockers. On the other hand, it achieves a 1-dB standard blocker compression point of + 3 dBm and out-of-band third-order input intercept point (OB-IIP3) of + 24 dBm at 40 MHz offset from the LO frequency. © 2021, The Author(s), under exclusive licence to Springer Science+Business Media, LLC part of Springer Nature.
