Defining the Optimal Architecture for Multi-Standard Radio Receivers Embedding Analog Signal Conditioning
This paper focuses on finding the optimal architecture for a multi-standard radio receiver embedding analog signal conditioning compatible with the major commercial wireless standards. By developing a standard independent methodology, the paper addresses systematically the large amount of information comprised in the envisaged standards. Based on the systematic approach, the multi-standard receiver main electrical requirements are defined and their values determined. The presented results constitute the starting point in building a multi-standard wireless receiver.
