Preface

Current and future mobile terminals become increasingly complex because they have to deal with a variety of frequency bands and communication standards. Achieving multi-band/multi-mode functionality is especially challenging for the radio frequency (RF)-transceiver section, due to limitations in terms of frequency-agile RF components that meet the demanding cellular performance criteria at costs that are attractive for mass-market applications. The focus of this volume is on novel transceiver concepts for multi-mode/multi-band cellular systems from the antenna to baseband. One approach is based on the integration of digital signal processing capabilities implemented locally on the RF integrated circuit. The utilization of digital signal processing capabilities is in line with the ongoing trend toward minimum-feature-sized RF-CMOS in the cellular market, which makes it extremely attractive in terms of flexibility, power consumption, and costs. Moreover, advances in the field of antennas, RF-front-end modules and novel analog signal processing architectures are covered to give a consolidated outlook on future concepts for cellular radios.

This volume summarizes cutting-edge physical-layer technologies for multi-mode wireless RF transceivers, specifically RF, analog, and digital circuits and architectures, anticipating the major trends and needs of the future wireless system developments. Firsthand materials from distinguished researchers and professionals from both academia ...
