This paper presents the first receiver supporting non-contiguous intra-band and inter-band carrier aggregation, capable of receiving up to three 20 MHz LTE carriers simultaneously. The single-chip receiver implements a reconfigurable architecture in 65nm CMOS, occupies 14.8 mm2 and consumes 155mW and 435 mW when receiving one and three carriers, respectively.
