[After having established itself as the dominant process for digital microelectronics, the past decade saw the emergence of CMOS as a viable process for Radio Frequency (RF) blocks. The advances in semiconductor technologies allowed for new long-sought-after opportunities for high scale...
[In this chapter, we take a look at RF systems from the system to the block level. The overview presents an introduction to the basic communication system, its various architectures and implementations. An architecture best suited for SoC integration is highlighted. Throughout the book, elements...
[The implementation of self-test, as discussed in this book, is not geared exclusively for production testing but also for post-production. Post-production, or more specifically, post-deployment testing will provide the platform for the implementation of on-chip adaptive calibration. The goal...
[This chapter expands on the previous discussion on the BiST-ready RF SoC and the design of suitable RF sensors for true on-chip test. We place the RF amplitude detector designed in the previous chapter in the test loop to enable a number of important characteristic tests for RF and mm-wave...
[The notion of cognitive radios came about a bit more than a decade ago, where it was suggested the radios should become powerful enough and smart enough to sense the outside world and environment and adjust their inputs and outputs accordingly. However, this deals only with the outside world,...
[The technology breakthroughs resulting in the successive scaling of CMOS transistors has kept Moore’s law alive for more than half a century. An important effect of physical dimension reduction is the increase in attainable operating frequencies. Therefore, devices are not only smaller but also...
