A simple method to model and simulate a Hiperlan/2 receiver front-end is presented. The heterodyne radio architecture is chosen to study due to its simplicity. For reference, the filter, the amplifier, and the mixer used in this linear system simulation have their paramenters set to values that  are commercially available. Simulations employed a commercial CAD are used to investigate the receiver performance by injecting one-tone RF carrier of 5.2 GHz. Required standard HIPERLAN/2 of maximum sensitivities at -68 dBm and minimum at-20 dBm are injected into the designed system. A harmonic balance analysis is used to perform both frequency and time domains of the receiver. Verification in the frequency and time domains shows that the system is  capable of designed in the power link budget under linear simulation environment. This means that a more complex circuit-level may by further implemented when standard test signals are added.
