how much is enough as iip3,is depend from the maximum input signal that you expected to receive without distortion,you can try to calculate iip3 with AppCAD (it's free).

First of all I don’t know what MWJ article you are talking about. This is a standard RF systems formula.
Second, you have to follow the WCDMA spec for levels, spacing, etc.
Third, seems that you are looking to calculate the LNA iip3 not Receiver iip3. They are different things.

Write your iip3 equation in the outputs menu and then make your simulations by changing bias current utilizing parametric simulation.So, when you change bias current, for each step PSS+PAC will calculate iip3 and you'll obtain iip3 vs bias current curve.

As your circuit is characterized by voltage (and not power) gain, be sure you appy and measure correct sources and loads.
A common practice is to talk about equivalent power levels. for example you can express the input voltage as equivalent power to 50 Ohm load.
To do so, take the 50 Ohm source and connect to 50 Ohm resistor. Take the input volt

Use your hand calculation to calculate the gain, bandwidth, pole etc..Change the size of the cap, the transistors and observe how these affect to the output. Use your spice simulatio to check the result. This is a very good start.

Because it lacks for display function like NF, iip3 and 1dB point, another fatal problem is that it can't show data on smith map. You still can write your own equations to compute these parameters but its not intuitive.

1. You can have your small-signal excitation input in the "pacmag" parameters of vsin source. If you have more then one input excitation, the output is just the linear combination of the response by these many excitation by superposition.
2. The pac analysis will include frequency conversion effect, i.e. you can calculate the gain from one side

From P1dB figure, we can find that the POWER gain is roughly -32dB, but the VOLTAGE gain figure shows that the VOLTAGE gain is 0dB, so the difference between these two values is resulted form the difference of Zin and Zload, or, impedance mismatch.
OIP3(dBm) = iip3(dBm) + "POWER" Gain(dB) ;
OIP3(dB) = iip3(dB) + "VOLTAGE" Gain(dB).

In RFIC, there is no need for 50 Ohm matching since the distance between the source and the load is small compared to the wavelength.
this implies that there is no need for matching inside the RFIC.
So now the output impedances and input impedances are not 50 Ohm (for example, input impedance of Mixer or output impedance of LNA).

10dB rule only applies when the power coefficient is constant, which is roughly true in block with single transistor and without feedback. In more complicated case, the difference is usually larger.
