The title of thesis is "Integrated Radio-Frequency Receivers for RF-to-Digital Converters”

Wideband and Tunable Software Controlled Receivers for Emerging Mobile Communication Standards

The emergence of new mobile communication standards demands a mobile receiver to operate over a wider frequency range with a smaller size and cheaper production costs. This requirement leads to the direction of wideband receivers which are tunable through software-control.

This thesis covers the challenges faced towards the implementation of completely integrated software-defined wideband radios. In particular, the thesis covers following research outcomes. First, the thesis details a new technique to implement wideband interferer tolerant on-chip filtering. The technique aims to achieve completely integrated wideband receivers. Second, a novel technique to reduce transmitter signal leakage is implemented for full-duplex reception. Third, blocker rejection and sensitivity issues in a direct delta sigma receiver architecture are analyzed to improve its performance.
