The market for driver assistance systems based on millimeter-wave radar sensor technology is gaining momentum. In the near future, the full range of newly introduced car models will be equipped with radar based systems which leads to high volume production with low cost potential. This paper provides background and an overview of the state of the art of(More)
In this work we investigate the use of a known symbol sequence – a so-called unique word (UW) – instead of the well-known cyclic prefix (as it is used in OFDM (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing) systems) for a single carrier system with frequency domain equalization (SC/FDE). The considered SC/FDE system is similar to the one proposed in the IEEE(More)
Multipath is today still one of the most critical problems in satellite navigation, in particular in urban environments, where the received navigation signals can be affected by blockage, shadowing, and multipath reception. Latest multipath mitigation algorithms are based on the concept of sequential Bayesian estimation and improve the receiver performance(More)
A direct digital synthesizer (DDS) with 6-bit amplitude and 8-bit phase resolution is presented. The phase-to-amplitude mapping circuit is implemented as a differential pair in saturation. The suitability of this circuit for broadband application and high temperature range is shown. The use of a modern SiGe bipolar technology enables both a low power(More)
This paper briefly reviews common state-of-the-art architectures of voltage regulators and their applicability to RFID. After that the design of a Low Drop-out (LDO) regulator using active resistances is presented, especially suitable for RFID applications. The chip is designed based on a 0.13 µm CMOS technology.
A new semi-physical memoryless computationally effective behavioral model (BM) capable of predicting amplitude-modulation-to-amplitude-modulation (AM-AM) and amplitude-modulation-to-phase-modulation (AM-PM) distortions is proposed. In recent years, AM-AM and AM-PM distortions have been separately studied in literature. Here, we investigate the correlation(More)
