As single-chip implementation of Bluetooth transceivers gains popularity [1,2], area reduction in the analog/RF part is inevitable. While all-digital polar transmitters achieving a small die size are attracting attention and their application to Bluetooth Basic Rate and GSM standards is now the reality [3,4], due to their shortcoming in the modulation… CONTINUE READING
