High-linearity CMOS RF front-end circuits by Yongwang Ding

By Yongwang Ding

This e-book specializes in excessive functionality radio frequency built-in circuits (RF IC) layout in CMOS. 1. improvement of radio frequency ICs instant communications has been advancing speedily some time past twenty years. Many excessive functionality platforms were built, corresponding to mobile platforms (AMPS, GSM, TDMA, CDMA, W-CDMA, and so forth. ), GPS procedure (global po- tioning procedure) and WLAN (wireless neighborhood region community) structures. The quick progress of VLSI expertise in either electronic circuits and analog circuits presents advantages for instant communique structures. 20 years in the past no longer many p- ple may possibly think hundreds of thousands of transistors in one chip or an entire radio for measurement of a penny. not merely whole radios were installed a unmarried chip, but additionally a growing number of capabilities were discovered via a unmarried chip and at a miles lower cost. A radio transmits and gets electro-magnetic signs throughout the air. The indications are typically transmitted on excessive frequency companies. for instance, a t- ical voice sign calls for simply 30 Kilohertz bandwidth. while it really is transmitted through a FM radio station, it is usually carried through a frequency within the variety of tens of megahertz to 1000s of megahertz. frequently a radio is categorised by means of its service frequency, corresponding to 900 MHz radio or five GHz radio. in most cases, the better the provider frequency, the higher the directivity, however the tougher the radio layout.
