This paper describes an improved digital quadrature frequency downconverter architecture. The presented architecture implements the quadrature frequency downconversion as two successive angle rotations. First, a coarse angle rotation is performed by using a modified, low-latency CORDIC algorithm. Then, a fine angle rotation based on a simple trigonometric approximation is realized. Compared with solutions based on the conventional CORDIC algorithm, our architecture offers reduced tuning latency… CONTINUE READING
