Reconfigurable Transceiver Architecture for Multiband RF-Frontends
This book investigates and discusses the hardware design and implementation to achieve smart air interfaces with a reduced number of Radio Frequency (RF) transmitter and receiver chains, or even with a single reconfigurable RF-Frontend in the user terminal. Various hardware challenges are identified and addressed to enable the implementation of autonomous reconfigurable RF-Frontend architectures. Such challenges are ( i ) the conception of a transceiver with wide tuning range of at least up to 6 GHz, ( ii ) the system integration of reconfigurable technologies targeting current compact devices that demand voltages up to 100 V for adaptive controlling and ( iii ) the realization of a multiband and multistandard antenna module employing agile components to provide flexible frequency coverage. A solid design of a reconfigurable frontend is proposed from the RF part to the digital baseband. The system integration of different components in the reconfigurable RF-Frontend of a portable-oriented device architecture is demonstrated.
