For the I/Q signal, we want have a good phase accuracy.But usually I/Q signal's phase accuracy will be deteriorated due to mismatch or process variation of I/Q buffers.
So buffers' design for I/Q signal will be important. Which buffer will be suitable in the I/Q output. Thank you ~~

What is the input and desired output signal level. Any amplification required? What is the frequency of opeeration?

The operation frequency is 5-6GHz.The input signal level is high,So i don't want to use this buffer to amplify the signal. I just want to get the good phase accuracy and little amplitude error...How I can design this buffer better~~~~~~~~.....Thankyou Jesal Mehta

Source follower can be an easy way to go here. Most of mismatch will come due to presence of layout/routing mismatch
