December 12, 2006 -- The complexity of next generation wireless standards necessitates a unified baseband and RF design methodology that takes into account the interaction and trade-offs between circuit and system implementations. The design of such systems requires that they perform within specified bounds in terms of numerous transmitter and receiver metrics such as adjacent channel leakage ratio (ACLR), error vector magnitude (EVM), receiver sensitivity, and bit-error-rate (BER) in various channel conditions and interference environments. A competitive design requires that the system meets the performance metrics while keeping the implementation complexity sufficiently low.
This seminar describes a system design framework that encompasses the design, evaluation and optimization of these systems and gives key insight into implementation issues in order to meet the conformance requirements. As an example, the seminar will investigate the implementation of the physical layer of a WCDMA/HSDPA system using a direct-down conversion architecture.
