Featured Book: Silicon-Based RF Front-Ends for Ultra Wideband Radios

Silicon-Based RF Front-Ends for Ultra Wideband Radios - RF CafeSilicon-Based RF Front-Ends for Ultra Wideband Radios, by Aminghasem Safarian and Payam Heydari, comprehensively studies silicon-based distributed architectures in wideband circuits. The book begins with an introduction of several transceiver architectures for UWB. The discussion then focuses on RF front-end of the UWB radio. First, the design and analysis of a performance-optimized CMOS distributed LNA is presented. This is followed by design of novel distributed RF front-ends for UWB IF-receivers (UWB-DRF). The book continues with the introduction of a novel distributed direct conversion RF front-end (DDC-RF).
