Chapter 13. Transceiver Design Example

Having studied the principles of RF architecture and circuit design in the previous chapters, we are now prepared to embark upon the design of a complete transceiver. In this chapter, we design in 65-nm CMOS technology a dual-band transceiver for IEEE 802.11a/g applications. We first translate the standard’s specifications to circuit design parameters and subsequently decide on the architecture and the frequency planning necessary to accommodate the 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz bands. The chapter outline is shown below.


In the circuit designs described in this chapter, the channel length of the transistors is equal ...
