Broadband Direct RF Digitization Receivers by Olivier Jamin

By Olivier Jamin

This publication discusses the trade-offs enthusiastic about designing direct RF digitization receivers for the radio frequency and electronic sign processing domain names. A system-level framework is constructed, quantifying the appropriate impairments of the sign processing chain, via a accomplished system-level research. distinctive concentration is given to noise research (thermal noise, quantization noise, saturation noise, signal-dependent noise), broadband non-linear distortion research, together with the influence of the sampling method (low-pass, band-pass), research of time-interleaved ADC channel mismatches, sampling clock purity and electronic channel choice. The system-level framework defined is utilized to the layout of a cable multi-channel RF direct digitization receiver. An optimal RF sign conditioning, and a few algorithms (automatic achieve keep an eye on loop, RF front-end amplitude equalization keep watch over loop) are used to chill the necessities of a 2.7GHz 11-bit ADC.
A two-chip implementation is gifted, utilizing BiCMOS and 65nm CMOS procedures, including the block and system-level dimension effects. Readers will enjoy the suggestions awarded, that are hugely aggressive, either by way of rate and RF functionality, whereas vastly decreasing energy consumption.

This is made possible by the digitization of the first IF and complex digital down-converters. As the IF is relatively high, this configuration can be designed multi-standard, and it has the potential to perform the simultaneous reception of multiple channels with a single receiver (with multiple parallel DDCs), therefore providing a low-power and low-cost implementation, without image rejection concern since the full analog path is real.

Left: RF signal. Right: IF signal However, the IF frequency shift has one drawback: as the channel lying at the image frequency can be much higher than the wanted channel, requirements on low-IF image rejection are much higher than on homodyne receivers. This issue can be alleviated by the use of a double-quadrature mixer. In case of digital I/Q signal path, this can also be mitigated using DSP techniques [31]. References [37–40] show broadband low-IF implementations for highperformance cable and terrestrial TV receivers.

9) where Δ is the step size of the quantizer.

The model is exact if e[n] is known. However, in most cases, e[n] is not known, because of input signal complexity, and a statistical model based on Fig. 11 must be adopted.
