Scope: Wireless and mobile communications is a fast growing area and has an enormous impact on almost every aspect of our daily lives. This new book examines integrated circuits, systems and transceivers for wireless and mobile communications. It covers the most recent developments in key RF, IF, analogue, mixed-signal components and single-chip transceivers in CMOS technology, a preferred technology for system on chip design. The book takes a top-down approach from wireless communications systems, mobile terminals/transceivers, to constituent blocks, and covers the whole range of analogue, mixed signal, baseband, IT and RF circuits in a systematic way.
Preface; Contributors; Wireless Communications and Transceivers - an Overview; Non-complex Signal Processing in a Low-IF Receiver; A Reconfigurable Baseband Chain for 3G Wireless Receivers; Field-Programmable and Reconfigurable Analogue and Mixed Signal Arrays; A Low Power Low Voltage Bluetooth Channel Filter Using Class AB CMOS Transconductors; Design and Automatic Tuning of Integrated Continuous-time Filters; Low-voltage Integrated RF CMOS Modules and Frontend for 5 GHz and Beyond; Design of Integrated CMOS Power Amplifiers for Wireless Transceivers; Parasitic-aware RF IC Design and Optimisation; testing of RF, Analog and Mixed-signal Circuits for Communications: an Embedded Approach.
