This paper reviews the basic functional building blocks and performance requirements of EIA/IS-3 and UK/TACS cellular communications terminals. Cost/performance justifications for utilizing custom VLSI in designing transceivers are illustrated using NovAtel's new 800/900 MHz product family as a case study. The overall goal was to integrate those components… CONTINUE READING
