Design of a Radio Frequency Front-End Receiver dedicated to Software-Radio for Mobile Terminals

Abstract : Many technological bottlenecks prevent from realizing a Software Radio (SR) mobile terminal. The old way of building radio architectures is over due to the numerous communication standards a single handeld terminal have to address nowadays. This thesis exposes a disruptive SR receiver: a Sampled Analog Signal Processor (SASP) is designed and brought into play to perform downconversion and channel presort. It processes analog voltage samples in order to recover in baseband any RF signal emitted from 0 to 5GHz. An analog Fast Fourier Transform achieves both frequency shifting and filtering. A prototype using 65nm CMOS technology from STMicroelectronics is here presented and measured.
