This book includes architectures by Babak Matinpour and Joy Laskar. It describes the actual implementation of receiver architectures from the initial design to an IC based product. It presents many tricks of the trade not usually covered in textbooks. It covers a range of practical issues including semiconductor technology selection, cost versus performance, yield, packaging, prototype development, testing, and analysis. It also discusses architectures that are employed in modern broadband wireless systems.
