A complex quadrature charge-sharing (CS) technique is utilized to implement a discrete-time band-pass filter with a programmable bandwidth of 20–100 MHz. The BPF is a natural part of a cellular superheterodyne receiver and completely determines the receiver frequency selectivity. It operates at the full sampling rate (4×) (described in Chapter 2 of up to 5.2 GHz corresponding to the 1.2 GHz RF input frequency, thus making it free from any aliasing or replicas in its transfer function. Furthermore, the advantages of CS-BPFover other band-pass filters, such as N-path, active-RC, Gm-C, and biquad are described. A mathematical noise analysis of the CS-BPF and the comparison of simulations and calculations are presented. The entire 65 nm CMOS receiver, which does not include a front-end LNTA for test reasons, achieves a total gain of 35 dB, IRN of 1.5 nV/?Hz, out-of-band IIP3 of +10 dBm. It consumes 24 mA at 1.2 V power supply.
In this chapter, we describe four realized examples of discrete-time receivers that are largely based on the architecture and circuitryintroduced in previous chapters. Starting with a commercial DT receiver designed for GSM single-chip radios, which introduces the novel low-pass IIR filter, we then continue with three highly reconfigurable superheterodyne receivers that employ the complex IQ charge-sharing band-pass filter (BPF) for image rejection.
One of the main building blocks in a receiver is a low-pass filter (LPF) used at the baseband. This block is responsible for selecting the desired channel. In zero-IF receivers, this block is placed directly after the RF downconversion mixer. In a high-IF receiver,the LPF is required after a second downconversion from the IF to baseband. In addition to wireless communication applications, integrated LPFs are the key building blocks in various other types of applications, such as hard disk drive read channels, video signal processing, smoothing filtering in a DAC, and antialiasing filtering before a sampling system. The noise of these filters is one of the key system-level concerns. This noise can be usually traded off with the total filter capacitance and, consequently, total power and area. Therefore, for a given system-level noise budget, a filter with a lower noise coefficient reduces the area and power consumption. On the other hand, the linearity of the filter should be high enough to maintain the fidelity of the wanted signal.
We start the book with the basics. In this chapter, we first present the motivation and fundamentals of discrete-time (DT) radio-frequency (RF) signal processing, and an overview of zero/low intermediate-frequency (IF) and superheterodyne receiver architec-tures. Then, different sampling schemes present in the state-of-the-art zero-IF DT receivers are studied using a simplified DT receiver. At the end, a 4×-sampling concept is introduced for use in DT high-IF receivers.
To be able to amplify an RF signal located at any of the supported cellular frequency bands, a wideband noise-canceling low-noiseamplifier (LNA) appears to be a good choice. As the receivers, later introduced in Chapter 5, are based on sampling the input charge, the RF amplifier needs to provide current rather than voltage, thus acting as a transconductance amplifier (TA) exhibiting a high output impedance compared to the input load of its subsequent stage. An LNTA (i.e., LNA+TA) could trivially be constructed by cascading LNA and TA (gm) stages. However, to improve noise and linearity, both of these circuits should be codesigned and tightly coupled. This chapter presents examples of state-of-the-art wideband noise-canceling LNTAs.
The first comprehensive guide to discrete-time (DT) receivers (RX), discussing the fundamental concepts and implications of the technology. This book will serve as an essential reference, covering the necessary building blocks of this field, such as low-noise transconductance amplifiers, current-driven mixers, DT band-pass filters, and DT low-pass filters. As well as addressing the basics, the authors present the most recent state-of-the-art techniques applied to the DT RX blocks. A step-by-step style is used to allow readers to develop the required skills to design the DT receivers at the architecture level, while providing in-depth knowledge of the details. Written by leading experts from academia, research, and industry, this book provides an excellent reference to the subject for a wide audience, from postgraduate students to experienced researchers and professionals working with RF circuits.
