  • Patent number: 10848116
    Abstract: A bi-directional active combiner and splitter using bi-directional variable gain amplifiers (BD_VGAs) is proposed. Advantages of the proposed bi-directional active combiner and splitter includes the following 1) compact size—for each BD_VGA, cascode transistor pair is small and the same matching network is used by the cascode transistor pair for both directions; 2) high efficiency—no switching loss in signal path, only switched matching; 3) reduced passive trace loss and power consumption—simplified signal interconnection; 4) active current combining—eliminates large size in the passive combiner; 5) high input-output isolation—cascode and neutralization; 6) precise gain control and unequal combining or splitting—changing the gain of the BD_VGA; and 7) phase-invariant amplifier design.
