An experimental multi-band/multi-mode radio for public safety applications is being developed in Virginia Tech under a project sponsored by the US Department of Justice. The goal of this project is to develop and demonstrate a single radio which can operate in all

Robust and efficient uncertainty quantification and validation of RFIC isolation
free download

Abstract. Modern communication and identification products impose demanding constraints on reliability of components. Due to this, statistical constraints more and more enter optimization formulations of electronic products. Yield constraints often require efficient

Ignoring the obvious: Possibilities for on-chip linearisation of rfic power amplifiers
free download

The requirements of multi-carrier PA (MCPA) basestations in the worldwide mobile phone system has caused a major re-invention of PA linearisation techniques over the last decade. The multicarrier signal environment and the accompanying regulatory emission requirements impose a very

Matching RFIC Wireless Transmitters to Small Loop Antennas
free download

Most short-range RF transmitters use a small loop antenna for radiation of the signal. This article provides a review of the impedance characteris- tics of these antennas and describes methods of matching the output of the transmitter to the very low impedance of the loop antenna, with adequate

Black-box modeling of RFIC amplifiers for linear and non-linear simulations
free download

Behavioral modeling of RFIC amplifiers is pre-sented, based on a novel approach that fits complex impedance dependent data for power compression, and Third Order Intercept (TOI) performance. An example, implemented in Agilent ADS, is shown for a commercially

Robust optimization of an RFIC isolation problem under uncertainties

Abstract Modern electronics systems involved in communication and identification impose demanding constraints on both reliability and robustness of components. On the one hand, it results from the influence of manufacturing tolerances within the continuous down-scaling

Linearity Performance Assessment of Nanoscale Gate Material Engineered Trapezoidal Recessed Channel (GME-TRC) MOSFET for RFIC design and Wireless
free download

ABSTRACT In this work, an extended study of linearity behaviour of proposed Gate Material Engineered-Trapezoidal Recessed Channel (GME-TRC) MOSFET has been performed using ATLAS and DEVEDIT device simulators and the results so obtained are compared

Co-design of full-duplex rfic and resource allocation algorithms
