This book is written to cover all aspects of mobile phones, beginning with the understanding of the working principles, to practical engineering, and to making the final product. There are some basic principles on which mobile communication systems working today are based. At present, there are various technologies available to select from when making a mobile system. Thus, we need to choose from what is available according to our requirements (for example, data speed, mobile speed) and collect these in a rule book to produce a standard so that everyone can do business together, as one can not develop all the components of the entire system individually. As the technology evolves, so many new standards are being developed. In this book, the reader is first introduced to the working principle of a mobile phone. Next, the different problems and the corresponding design solutions (including the various latest research) into the RF and baseband design are described. These are the basic principles that any designer has to comprehend in order to analyze and understand the design of any mobile device. Then the details of the design of mobile phones through the different generations are discussed. As a case study, the anatomy and internal details of 2G, 3G, and 4G mobile phones are described. Finally, some of the hardware and software design challenges for mobile phone are covered.
