Choosing the correct system architecture in implementing a system is critical in the design of on chip systems. Differing architectures have benefits and detriments. The subject will introduce students to the different RF architectures and provide students with the machinery to estimate transceiver performance and compare direct conversion and super heterodyne transceivers. Simulating transceivers is complex and full chip simulations can take many days to complete. Models for mixers, low noise amplifiers and power amplifiers will be provided to help with simulation and design as well as providing the students with insights on performing the right tradeoffs in simulation and design.
Upon successful completion of this subject students should be able to:
