More About This Textbook


Wireless Transceiver Systems Design presents the design trade-off challenge from theperspective of the system architect, who is concerned with both an efficient design process and a competitive design result. This includes solutions to the two central design challenges, which are, how to efficiently design a WLAN system and how to prepare for the upcoming challenges of flexible, multi-standard terminals.

This book illustrates true cross-disciplinary electronic system-level design with examples in algorithmarchitecture co-design, mixed-signal algorithm and architecture co-design, and cross-layer system exploration. It also focuses on three recurring themes, the preference for scalable and reusable architectual concepts, proof-of-concept through actual design and experimental verification, and consequent analysis of design steps and their development into a methodology.

Wireless Transceiver Systems Design is a valuable reference for specialists in the field of OFDM transceiver design.
