Description : The book reports modeling and simulation techniques for substrate noise coupling effects in RFICs and introduces isolation structures and design guides to mitigate such effects with the ultimate goal of enhancing the yield of RF and mixed signal SoCs. The book further reports silicon measurements, and new test and noise isolation structures. To the authors’ knowledge, this is the first title devoted to the topic of substrate noise coupling in RFICs as part of a large SoC.
Description : This newly revised second edition provides a current, comprehensive treatment of the subject with a focus on applying practical knowledge to real-world networks. It includes a wealth of important updates, including discussions on backhaul capacity limitations, ethernet over radio, details on the latest cellular radio standards (2.5G, 3G, and 4G). You also learn about recent changes in spectrum management, including the availability of unlicensed bands and new mm band frequencies between 70 and 90 GHz. Additionally, you find more details on the fundamentals of antennas, especially at VHF/UHF levels. Written in an easy-to-understand style, the author provides practical guidelines based on hands-on experience. You find valuable assistance in designing and planning SDH/SONET broadband networks, wireless local loop networks, and backhaul for mobile radio networks. Moreover, this authoritative volume covers frequency planning for radio networks, digital radio equipment characteristics, and fading in radio systems. Using practical case studies, Microwave Radio Transmission Design Guide, Second Edition gives you proven advice that helps you save time and money when developing new networks, and reduces your risk of encountering problems during design and planning.
Description : The Verilog Hardware Description Language (Verilog-HDL) has long been the most popular language for describing complex digital hardware. It started life as a prop- etary language but was donated by Cadence Design Systems to the design community to serve as the basis of an open standard. That standard was formalized in 1995 by the IEEE in standard 1364-1995. About that same time a group named Analog Verilog International formed with the intent of proposing extensions to Verilog to support analog and mixed-signal simulation. The first fruits of the labor of that group became available in 1996 when the language definition of Verilog-A was released. Verilog-A was not intended to work directly with Verilog-HDL. Rather it was a language with Similar syntax and related semantics that was intended to model analog systems and be compatible with SPICE-class circuit simulation engines. The first implementation of Verilog-A soon followed: a version from Cadence that ran on their Spectre circuit simulator. As more implementations of Verilog-A became available, the group defining the a- log and mixed-signal extensions to Verilog continued their work, releasing the defi- tion of Verilog-AMS in 2000. Verilog-AMS combines both Verilog-HDL and Verilog-A, and adds additional mixed-signal constructs, providing a hardware description language suitable for analog, digital, and mixed-signal systems. Again, Cadence was first to release an implementation of this new language, in a product named AMS Designer that combines their Verilog and Spectre simulation engines.
Description : An excellent resource for engineers and engineering students alike, this practical design guide offers you a comprehensive overview of the most important aspects and components of radio frequency equipment and systems. The book applies theoretical fundamentals to real-world issues, extensively using examples from recent design projects. You learn how to configure an effective receiver and transmitter architectures from commercial blocks, determine the most efficient ways of circumventing wave propagation problems in a real network, assemble a reliable test environment for an RF project, and make a design survive in the real operating environment.
