A Triple-Band Transceiver Module for 2.3/2.5/3.5 GHz Mobile WiMAX Applications
A triple-band transceiver module for 2.3/2.5/3.5 GHz mobile WiMAX, IEEE 802.16e, applications is introduced. The suggested transceiver module consists of RFIC, reconfigurable/multi-resonance MIMO antenna, embedded PCB, mobile WiMAX base band, memory and channel selection front-end module. The RFIC is fabricated in 0.13?m RF CMOS process and has 3.5 dB Noise Figure (NF) of receiver and 1 dBm maximum power of transmitter with 68-pin QFN package, 8 x 8 mm2 area. The area reduction of transceiver module is achieved by using embedded PCB which decreases area by 9% of the area of transceiver module with normal PCB.
