Obiettivi formativi
This course is aimed at introducing students to the design of integrated transceivers for wireless communications. At the end, attendees will have gained knowledge of fundamental parameters describing system performances, insights into alternative processing architectures and ability to design the following building blocks: low noise amplifiers, up and down converters, power amplifier, phase locked loop, phase detector, filter, voltage controlled oscillator, frequency synthesizer. As an example, the design of a complete transceiver will be described starting from the specifications of a telecommunication application, such as GSM, W-CDMA, WLAN. Based on computer aided design experience carried out in the Laboratory, the student will be able to finalize the design of single blocks integrated in most advanced CMOS nodes and will be ready for the design of complete transceivers.
