Modern transceiver systems require diversified design aspects as various radio and sensor applications have emerged. Choosing the right architecture and understanding interference and linearity issues are important for multistandard cellular transceivers and software-defined radios. A millimeter-wave CMOS transceiver design for multi-Gb/s data transmission is another challenging area. Energy-efficient shortrange radios for body area networks and sensor networks have recently received great attention. To meet different design requirements, gaining good system perspectives is important. This book addresses not only comprehensive system design considerations for robust wireless communication but also practical design aspects in state-of-the-art transceivers. In addition to dealing with system architectures and design considerations, a few chapters are devoted to critical building blocks with detailed circuit description and analyses.
The book is divided into four sections dealing with system design perspectives for wireless transceivers, millimeter-wave transceivers, biomedical and short-range radios, and modulators and frequency synthesizers. Section I provides system design considerations in modern transceiver design. Chapter 1 discusses how to design a receiver or a transmitter with passive mixers for the best gain and linearity performance. The passive mixer–based transceiver is another important trend in modern transceiver systems. For multistandard transceiver systems, an interference-robust receiver design with good linearity is a must. Chapter 2 presents an in-depth study of the second-order intermodulation distortion (IM2) for the design of robust homodyne and low-intermediate frequency receivers, and Chapter 3 shows how to mitigate the performance degradation of the receiver in the presence of out-of-band interference. Chapter 4 presents frequency-translated filters to deal with interferers for the design of surface acoustic wave-less receivers. The following two chapters show different receiver design aspects: Chapter 5 defines the cognitive radio in the narrow sense of an intelligent device that is able to dynamically adapt and negotiate wireless frequencies and communication protocols for efficient communications and describes the different kinds of wideband spectrum sensing architectures. Chapter 6 introduces a direct delta-sigma receiver architecture that transforms a traditional direct conversion front end and a baseband delta-sigma converter into a complete radio frequency-to-digital converter.
For Gb/s data transmission, millimeter-wave transceivers are promising, but achieving low power consumption is critical for mobile applications. Section II covers both systems and circuits for the millimeter-wave transceiver design. Chapter 7 introduces the most up-to-date status of the 60 GHz wireless transceiver development, with an emphasis on realizing low power consumption and small form factor that is applicable for mobile terminals. Chapter 8 describes D-band (110–170 GHz) CMOS circuits to realize low-power, ultrahigh-speed wireless communication systems. As a case study, a 10 Gb/s wireless transceiver with a power consumption of 98 mW is demonstrated using a 135 GHz band. Combined with the contemporary advances in millimeter-wave electronic technology, photonic technology enables significant advances in communications and remote sensing. Chapter 9 presents photonic techniques that have made significant advances in recent years and offers approaches to significantly reduce or eliminate the drawbacks associated with millimeter-wave technologies. For example, generating sufficiently low-noise millimeter-wave signals to enable high modulation format communications signals has proven difficult using electronic techniques. The following two chapters deal with two important building blocks of the millimeter-wave transceiver: In Chapter 10, challenges in the design of and different kinds of millimeter-wave power amplifiers are described. Frequency multipliers are useful in millimeter-wave transceivers to alleviate the difficulty of fundamental oscillator design at high frequencies. Chapter 11 discusses the design issues of frequency multipliers with several circuit examples.
While millimeter-wave transceivers are studied for high-data-rate transmission, low-power transceivers have recently received great attention for body area networks and sensor networks. Section III introduces four energy-efficient short-range radios for biomedical and wireless connectivity applications. Chapter 12 describes ultrawideband (UWB) transceivers for microwave medical imaging. A 65 nm CMOS fully integrated stepped-frequency continuous wave radar is presented as a case study. Chapter 13 discusses design challenges in ultralow-power and ultralow-voltage circuits and presents circuit techniques. Wideband ultralow-power and ultralowvoltage, low-noise amplifiers and a UWB transceiver for wireless sensor networks with a low-complexity synchronization scheme are demonstrated. Chapter 14 presents an energy-efficient sub-GHz transmitter design for biomedical applications. In this work, a 100 Mb/s transmitter design with an energy efficiency of 13 pJ/bit is reported. Chapter 15 describes the design and implementation of a compact, lowpower, high-spurious-free dynamic range receiver suitable for ZigBee or wireless personal area network (WPAN) applications. It gives an overview of a low-power receiver based on the split-LNTA + 50% LO architecture and also presents a number of ultralow-power and ultralow-voltage circuit design techniques.
Frequency synthesizer is an important block in transceivers, and a digitalintensive phase modulator becomes one of the key building blocks in modern transmitters as emphasized in Section IV. Chapter 16 discusses the all-digital phaselocked loop design as well as the two-point modulation scheme for linear wideband phase modulation. Chapter 17 introduces a hybrid two-point modulator that employs a mixed-signal loop control to achieve analog phase tracking and digital frequency acquisition. Chapter 18 gives a good overview of modern fractional-N frequency synthesizer architectures. In Chapter 19, a 60 GHz frequency synthesizer with a frequency calibration scheme that can support IEEE 802.15.3c, wirelessHD, IEEE 802.11ad, and ECMA-387 TX/RX front end is presented. Chapter 20 gives a good tutorial of the digitally controlled oscillator (DCO), which is the most critical block in the all-digital phase-locked loop.
