The wireless revolution has come upon us swiftly and powerfully.
Today one of the most challenging areas for VLSI designers is VLSI circuit and system design for wireless applications. The design of a cellular radio system involves several engineering disciplines ranging from communication theory and digital signal processing to high frequency semiconductor technology and circuit design. Furthermore, the new generation of wireless systems, which includes multimedia, puts severe constraints on performance, cost, size, power and energy.
VLSI designers now need to understand both wireless communication and mixed signal design. Mixed Signal VLSI Wireless Design: Circuits and Systems provides the designer with an overview of wireless communication systems, followed by a detailed treatment of related topics such as the mobile radio, digital modulation and schemes, spread spectrum and receiver architectures.
The second half of the book deals with VLSI design issues related to mixed-signal design. These include analog-to-digital conversion, transceiver design, digital low-power techniques, amplifier design, phase-locked loops and frequency synthesizers.
Mixed Signal VLSI Wireless Design: Circuits and Systems is written for use in advanced level courses and also serves as a basic reference for professional engineers.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'...excellent overview of the key aspects of wireless systems including system fundamentals, system design issues, and electronic implementation issues including discussions of A/D and D/A converters as well as standard analog functions utilized in current radio systems. This text book is particularly useful as a starting point for engineers in the field... very readable, always highlighting the key issues in summary form; provides adquate theory to explain concepts; and discusses the pros and cons of alternative solutions in a concise and effective manner. ...highly recommend this text as a starting text for those who wish to technically understand the RF system, system block design parameters, and issues as well as design directions in a crisp, articulate manner with the essential mathematics.'
