hi everyone, i have designed a distributed LNA for 0.1G to 3G, with distributed topology, the gain is 8.2dB, s11=-13 s22=-7.5dB ( i will improve it) NF =4.1dB and IIP3= 3.02 and 1dB compression point= -8 so can anyone tell will this work for 802.11n with 2.4GHz band. 802.11n uses MIMO ( i dont knw much abt it) but it have mukltiple transmitters and receivers , so i needed to knw that will the LNA will get multi channel input , or all the channels are combined before feeding into LNA, i guess its a stupid question but i need to know =(( kindly reply guys

Both systems use OFDM modulation, so the LNA will work fine for both (when MIMO is not used in 802.11n).
For MIMO situation you need separate LNA's and receivers paths.
