Wireless Transceiver Systems Design

  • Combines the fields of communication, signal processing, embedded systems, and circuits

  • Focuses on a single design goal, a WLAN transceiver

  • Describes how analog and digital, VLSI and systems design, algorithms and architectures, design and CAD/EDA all work together within the WLAN transceiver

  • Approaches design problems and design organization needed for transceiver design without focusing on a particular standard


About this book


Wireless Transceiver Systems Design presents the design trade-off challenge from the perspective 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 algorithm-architecture 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.
