Channel Selection at RF

Behzad Razavi

Abstract A holy grail in RF design has been to perform channel selection at RF, i.e., remove strong interferers and even out-of-channel noise at the receiver input rather than in the baseband. Such an approach is attractive for it obviates the need for SAW filters and greatly relaxes the linearity... Read More
