Introduction

A direct conversion radio receiver takes a high frequency input signal, often in the 800MHz to 3GHz frequency range, and utilizes one mixer/demodulator stage to convert the signal to baseband without going through an intermediate frequency (IF) stage. The resulting low frequency (baseband) signal spectrum has useful information at frequencies from DC to typically ...
