This paper presents a compensation method of active inductor losses, employing passive gyrator degeneration rather than an external negative impedance converter. Theoretical analysis is confirmed by a comparative simulations of two resonators designed for 434 MHz band, using Eldo RF and Spectre and the UMC 0.18 mu m 1P6M process. Presented results show that the proposed loss compensation method achieves comparable noise and large signal performance to a standard active inductor resonator and provides a significant improvement in static power consumption.
