This paper presents the design of continuously tunable low noise amplifier with frequency tuning range from 2.2 to 2.8 GHz. The amplifier achieves input matching and tunability through a transformer based input matching network. The proposed circuit uses an inductively degenerated common source cascode amplifier to design the amplification stage. The circuit includes a phase shifter circuit to shift the phase of the input signal to achieve tunability through transformer. The LNA achieves a maximum gain of more than 17dB in the entire tuning range. The LNA attains a perfect impedance match across the tuning range and has a stable operation. In addition, it achieves a low noise figure ranging from 1.4dB to 5.2dB.
