13 May 2011 New techniques for efficient flexible wireless transceivers in nanometer CMOS
Author Affiliations +
Nanometer CMOS processes have proven to be surprisingly effective for analog and RF design. New design techniques have greatly improved the efficiency of ADCs and RF interfaces and also enabled new flexibility. Moving to techniques that are more digital in nature allows fast and easy changes in architecture and performance. Furthermore, from the standpoint of energy efficiency there can be fundamental advantages to processing signals in the digital domain. This paper discusses digital dominant nanometer CMOS transmitter and receiver schemes that are the basis of flexible efficient wireless transceivers for the MAST platforms.
