%X In this paper a new method for the design of a linear phase distributed amplifier in 180nm CMOS technology is presented. The method is based on analogy between transversal filters and distributed amplifiers topologies. In the proposed method the linearity of the phase at frequency range of 0-50 GHz is obtained by using proper weighting factors for each gain stage in cascaded amplifier topology. These weighting factors have been extracted using MATLAB software. Finally, by plotting the frequency response of the amplifier resulted from MATLAB code and also simulation from ADS, the phase linearity of the designed amplifier is shown.
