The evolution of mobile communication standards presents numerous challenges in mobile handset design. Designers must continue to turn out handsets that maintain high device performance and air interface compatibility, while at the same time shrink power consumption, form factors, and costs.
Mobile Handset Design is uniquely written to equip professionals and students with a complete understanding of how a mobile phone works, and teaches the skills to design the latest mobile handsets. Das walks readers through mobile phone operating principles, system infrastructure, TDMA-FDMA-CDMA-OFDMA techniques, hardware anatomy, software and protocols, and internal modules, components, and circuits. He presents all problems associated with mobile wireless channels and recommends corresponding design solutions to overcome those issues. Mobile RF front-end, digital baseband design techniques, and associated trade-offs are also covered. Das also discusses the productization aspects and reviews new research developments for different mobile phone systems over generations.
