About this book


High Data Rate Transmitter Circuits is a practical guide and introduction to the design of key RF building blocks used in high data rate transmitters. The emphasis lies on CMOS circuit techniques applicable to oscillators and upconvertors. Furthermore, a method for RF-specific design automation is exemplified by the CYCLONE tool for automated LC-VCO synthesis.

Written in an easily accessible manner, High Data Rate Transmitter Circuits is essential reading for both students and practicing engineers interested in analog RF design and RF-specific design automation. The book has been praised for its pleasant and light style of writing, without losing detail on the technical side.

From the reviews:

"This book deals with the design of CMOS integrated electronic circuits for high data rate transmissions. The authors focus on voltage-controlled oscillators (VCO), upconvertors and some functional blocks … . The book can be viewed as a handbook for practicing engineers interested in the design of analog integrated circuits, who may find there new ideas or inspiration for their daily work."
