Radio-frequency Digital-to-analog Converters : Implementation in Nanoscale Cmos (Hardcover) (Morteza S.
About this item
Advanced Radio-Frequency Digital-to-Analog Converters provides a comprehensive resource that coincides with the proliferation of wireless networks. With this proliferation, there is a need for more compact, low-cost, power efficient transceivers that are capable of supporting various communication standards, including GSM, WLAN, Bluetooth, GNSS, FM, and 4G of 3GPP cellular.
This book describes a novel, all-digital, fully-integrated RF transmitter that supports all the current multi-mode and multi-band communication standards that are power efficient. With this book, users will understand the challenges of realizing a universal CMOS RF transmitter, recognize design issues and the advantages and disadvantages related to analog and digital transmitter architectures, master design of an RF transmitter from system level modeling techniques down to circuit designs and their related layout know-hows, grasp digital I/Q calibration techniques and digital predistortion approaches, and learn how to generate appropriate digital I/Q baseband signals in order to apply them to the test chip to measure the RF-DAC performance.
