This paper presents the design and fabrication of an LNA and a mixer for a multiband UWB wireless receiver using distributed circuit topologies. First, the design of a 3-stage CMOS distributed LNA circuit consisting of three cascode cells is introduced. Next, the design of a 2-stage CMOS distributed mixer consisting of two single-balanced cells is(More)
Thematic mapping of complex landscapes, with various phenological patterns from satellite imagery, is a particularly challenging task. However, supplementary information, such as multitemporal data and/or land surface temperature (LST), has the potential to improve the land cover classification accuracy and efficiency. In this paper, in order to map land(More)
This paper demonstrates high-speed design techniques that enable realization of a full-rate broadband serializer operating at 40 Gb/s using a 0.18-μm CMOS process. Bandwidth enhancement techniques, including shunt-peaking and multipole bandwidth enhancement, have been incorporated in the different high-speed blocks in the serializer. A dynamic(More)
— Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) is known as an efficient technique to combat frequency selective channels. In our earlier work, we showed that the combination of bit interleaved coded modulation (BICM) and OFDM achieves the full frequency diversity offered by a frequency selective channel with equal power delay profile conditioned on the(More)
