A Low Power Baseband Chain for CMMB Application

Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper presents experimental results of an analog baseband circuit for China Multimedia Mobile Broadcasting (CMMB) direct conversion receiver in 0.35um SiGe BiCMOS process. It is the first baseband of CMMB RFIC reported so far. A 8th-order chebyshev Low Pass Filter (LPF) with calibration system is used in the analog baseband circuit, the filter provides 0.5 dB passband ripple and -35 dB attenuation at 6MHz with the cutoff frequency at 4MHz, the calibration of filter is reported to achieve the bandwidth accuracy of 3%. The baseband Variable Gain Amplifier (VGA) achieves more than 40 dB gain tuning with temperature compensation.
