The desire of having applications covering all service specifications tremendously increases the demand for multi-band multi-standard receivers. A programmable receiver front-end architecture for multi-band multi-standard receivers is proposed. The receiver adopts a down-conversion quadrature band-pass FIR charge sampling mixer programmed via its controlling clocks. A time varying impedance matching network provides further selectivity. The architecture is simulated over three different… CONTINUE READING
