About this book

Introduction

This book introduces a completely novel architecture that can relax the trade-off existing today between noise, power and area consumption in a very suitable solution for advanced wireless communication systems. Through the combination of charge-domain operation with incremental signaling, this architecture gives the best of both worlds, providing the reduced area and high portability of digital-intensive architectures with an improved out-of-band noise performance given by intrinsic noise filtering capabilities. Readers will be enabled to design higher performance radio front-ends that consume less power and area, especially with respect to the transmitter and power amplifier designs, considered by many the “battery killers” on most mobile devices.

  • Describes an innovative architecture that has proved to support advanced wireless communication systems, with outstanding noise performance and improved power and area consumption;
  • Provides an in-depth description of underlying concepts, implementation and results achieved;
  • Demonstrates two real implementations, showing design details and measurement results.
