A CMOS wideband low noise amplifier (LNA) based on distributed LC network is presented in this paper. Employing the distributed LC network, the bandwidth of the low noise amplifier is greatly increased without sacrificing the gain of the amplifier. The amplifier is designed in 65nm CMOS process. Simulated result shows that the gain of the amplifier is 21.8 dB, while the 3dB bandwidth is 7.3 GHz from 21.5 GHz to 28.8 GHz. The input and output return loss are -13.6 dB and -16.5 dB at 24 GHz, respectively. The noise figure is 2.87 dB at 25.2 GHz and below 4 dB from 19.6 to 31.3 GHz. The amplifier consumes 14.9 mA current from 1.2 V voltage supply. The layout area of the amplifier is 0.66*0.48 mm2 including all pads.
