Wireless LAN Radios: System Definition to Transistor Design (IEEE Press Series on Microelectronic Systems)

Buy
As one of the few rising stars of the semiconductor industry, WLAN design is engaging more and more engineers and companies. Essential to the overall system design, is the radio design. In Wireless LAN Radios Arya Behzad covers the necessary theory while emphasizing the practical aspects of this promising technology.
This book introduces the nuances of the 802.11 WLAN PHY standards (A/B/G) and describes their specifications and impact on radio design. The possible choices for the radio architecture (direct-conversion, low-IF, super heterodyne) are examined and their impact on the transistor-level design is explained. Coverage includes the effect of certain analog/RF impairments on the overall system performance and a discussion of the choice of process technology on the radio architecture.

A high-level overview of radio design for wireless LAN systems

The Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN), in both the technical and business worlds, is one of the few rising stars in the semiconductor industry. It is attracting a growing number of engineers and companies with its fairly high reliability, low cost, and high throughputs. As this trend continues, it is becoming increasingly important for both LAN system designers and circuit designers to have a solid grasp of WLAN applications to design the next generation of radios.

Wireless LAN Radios presents a sophisticated overview of the subject, covering the necessary theory while emphasizing the practical aspects of this promising technology. Coverage includes:

  • 802.11 flavors and system requirements

  • Receiver and transmitter radio architectures

  • Analog impairments and issues

  • Key radio building blocks

  • Calibration techniques

  • Case studies

  • A brief discussion of 802.11n

Wireless LAN Radios also presents a detailed explanation of analog, digital, and mixed-mode calibration techniques for improving system performance and chip yield, while the impact of radio architecture on die size, system cost, and power consumption is also thoroughly evaluated. Complete with several case studies that explore the morass of trade-offs faced in industry, this books offers a meaningful presentation of real-world issues facing designers, engineers, theorists, and researchers working in this industry. The book is also an excellent text for graduate students in the general area of wireless LAN design.

About the Author

Arya Behzad is currently a Broadcom Distinguished Engineer, where he is the Director of Engineering working on radios for current and future generation wireless products and Product Line Manager for all wireless LAN radio products. This book and his IEEE Expert Now course on wireless LAN radio design are both derived from his popular course on this topic at the IEEE ISSCC.

The Design of Climate Policy (CESifo Seminar Series)
The Design of Climate Policy (CESifo Seminar Series)
Debates over post-Kyoto Protocol climate change policy often take note of two issues: the feasibility and desirability of international cooperation on climate change policies, given the failure of the United States to ratify Kyoto and the very limited involvement of developing countries, and the optimal timing of climate policies. In this book...

Practical Linux
Practical Linux gears itself toward people who don't want to be burdened with technobabble, but just want to use Linux just as they would any other operating system. Most books in this category concentrate mostly on the installation and configuration process, while neglecting content that helps you use Linux for daily tasks. This book covers all...

Scalable Input/Output: Achieving System Balance (Scientific and Engineering Computation)
Scalable Input/Output: Achieving System Balance (Scientific and Engineering Computation)

As we enter the "decade of data," the disparity between the vast amount of data storage capacity (measurable in terabytes and petabytes) and the bandwidth available for accessing it has created an input/output bottleneck that is proving to be a major constraint on the effective use of scientific data for research. Scalable...

The Cambridge History of Science: Volume 2, Medieval Science

This volume in the highly respected Cambridge History of Science series is devoted to the history of science in the Middle Ages from the North Atlantic to the Indus Valley. Medieval science was once universally dismissed as non-existent - and sometimes it still is. This volume reveals the diversity of goals, contexts, and accomplishments in...
