Mixed-Mode Telecom Design

This contribution will concentrate on several aspects of mixed-mode telecommunication design. Currently, a strong focus on single chip realisations of relatively simple wireless standards like Bluetooth can be foreseen. However, integrating RF, mixed signal and digital baseband on a single die will confront the designer with design aspects he did normally not take into account.
