Increase the efficient use of time-varying available spectrum with this unique book, the first to describe RF hardware design for white space applications, including both analog and digital approaches. Emerging technologies are discussed and signal processing issues are addressed, providing the background knowledge and practical tools needed to develop future radio technologies. Real-world examples are included, together with global spectrum regulations and policies, for a practical approach to developing technologies for worldwide applications. Cross analog and digital design guidelines are provided to help cut design time and cost. This holistic, system level view of transceiver design for white space technologies is ideal for practising engineers and students and researchers in academia.
