About the Authors
  • Examining the most important developments in highly integrated wireless RF front-ends, this book describes and evaluates both active and passive solutions for on-chip high-Q filtering, and explores M-phase filters in depth. An accessible step-by-step approach is used to introduce everything an RF designer needs to know about these filters, including their various forms, principles of operation, and their performance against implementation-related imperfections. Real-world examples are described in depth, and detailed mathematical analyses demonstrate the practical quantification of pertinent circuit parameters.

    • Presents the most important and most recent developments, highlighting useful and relevant techniques
    • Considers active blocker cancellation techniques in addition to passive filter techniques
    • Includes a detailed discussion of imperfect operation arising from non-ideal implementation
