A 50MHz-to-1.5 GHz cross-correlation CMOS spectrum analyzer for cognitive radio with 89dB SFDR in 1MHz RBW
free download

Spectrum sensing for cognitive radio requires a high linearity to handle strong signals, and at the same time a low noise figure (NF) to enable detection of much weaker signals. Often there is a trade-off between linearity and noise: improving one of them degrades the other

free download

A dual RF-receiver preceded by discrete-step attenuators is implemented in 65nm CMOS and operates from 0.3 1.0 GHz. The noise of the receivers is reduced by cross-correlating the two receiver outputs in the digital baseband, allowing attenuation of the RF input signal

Spectrum analyzer with USRP, GNU Radio and MATLAB
free download

In this paper, a spectrum analyzer in the 2.3-2.7 GHz band is proposed using the USRP, GNU Radio and the MATLAB software. With this solution, a cheap and reliable analyzer can be made, also serving as an introductory work for a cognitive radio. A RF signal generator The two-channel combined hardware/software system contains a spectrum analyzer an oscilloscope, a frequency meter, a phase meter, a dc and ac voltmeter, and instruments for measuring noise, nonlinear distortions, power, and the ampli- tude distribution density of the input

Analysis and design of an ADC for a spectrum analyzer
