This chapter provides an overview of design techniques and system aspects relevant to the application of high-speed pipelined ADCs in wireless base transceiver stations (BTS). The discussion begins with a derivation of typical ADC specifications for the receive path of a multi-carrier BTS system. Next, we investigate issues pertaining to the interface between the ADC and its driving circuitry, including complications that arise with sample-and-hold-amplifier-less (SHA-less) ADC frontends. Lastly, we summarize recent research results that look into the digital linearization

Mixers are a vital part of any transceiver architecture, and their performance is critical to achieving overall specifications. Although the basic operation is, in principle, a simple multiplication, in reality the circuit level implementation must be tailored to the specific function in the signal chain, and the technology being used. Starting from some of the basic principles, this chapter aims to identify the physical origins of noise and linearity issues, and lay out the design constraints and choices for the

Design concepts and an example of bandpass Delta-Sigma ADCs for wireless receivers are described. Delta-Sigma ADC design involves a variety of choices in the system design phase, such as lowpass vs. bandpass loop filter or, feedback vs. feedforward architecture. In the first half of the chapter, such system decisions are compared and discussed in the context of wireless communication applications. The latter half of the Chapter describes an example bandpass Delta-Sigma ADC design based on the aforementioned discussions. Circuit implementations

This chapter presents high-efficiency power amplifiers (PAs) for wireless infrastructure. It starts by stating the importance of high efficiency and the historical evolution in base station PA concepts. It then introduces the current solution, the Doherty PA. After explaining the fundamentals of the Doherty PA, a novel implementation achieving more than 35% drain efficiency across a 6dB power back-off range and up to 20W peak power between 1.7 and 2.3GHz is given. Afterwards, a future PA concept, switch-mode outphasing PA, is introduced.

In less than one decade after their introduction into radio-frequency applications, digital fractional-N phase-locked loops (PLLs) have become a relevant topic in microelectronic research and a practical solution for products. In addition to the well-known advantages, such as their silicon area occupation scaling as technology node and their easier portability to new nodes, digital PLLs enable easy and low-cost implementation of calibration techniques, which substantially reduce spurious tones and remove other major analog impairments. In wideband PLLs, the ultimate level

Radios for cellular wireless infrastructure require low-noise amplifiers (LNAs) with very demanding requirements on noise and linearity performance. So far these amplifiers have been realized in III-V technologies, but for various reasons silicon-based LNAs are needed too. This chapter will explain the challenges in LNA design for this application field.

Time-to-digital converter (TDC) circuits are a key component for achieving high-performance digital phase-locked loops (PLLs) which offer lower area and greater flexibility than their analog PLL counterparts. This chapter focuses on a recently developed TDC architecture known as the gated ring oscillator (GRO) which offers first-order shaping of its quantization noise and delay stage mismatch. To provide context for the GRO discussion, background on general TDC implementation techniques is described along with key performance issues related to digital frequency synthesizers.

This paper reviews recent developments of interleaved Successive Approximation Analog-to-Digital converters (SAR) in deep sub-micron CMOS technologies. The discussion covers design tradeoffs and degrees of freedom related to the impact of extensive interleaving with many SAR units on bandwidth, noise, linearity, and spurious performance. The impact of interleaving mismatches on representative broadband and multi-carrier narrowband signals is also discussed. Next, two examples are given demonstrating how interleaving with many ADCs can be transformed from a weakness to a strength. The
