Switching low noise amplifier

Image Number 6 for United States Patent #8130033.

Disclosed are embodiments of an integrated circuit device, method and design structure for selectively amplifying one of multiple received input signals. The embodiments incorporate at least two first stage transistors and a single second stage transistor. The first stage transistors are adapted to receive input signals from the same or different input signal sources and are each electrically coupled to the second stage transistor. A control circuit design is adapted to individually turn on a selected first stage transistor in conjunction with the second stage transistor, thereby activating a corresponding one of the cascode amplifiers and allowing the input signal received by the selected first stage transistor to be separately amplified.
