Abstract

This chapter discusses circuit-level issues related to the design of transceivers for ultra wideband systems. Several techniques for achieving broadband gain, and their trade-offs with respect to power, performance and area are presented. An overview of circuit approaches for front-end and variable gain amplification, frequency translation, filtering, data conversion and frequency synthesis is provided. The problem of interference and coexistence in UWB systems is introduced.
