Having gained experience in developing the first ever all-digital transmitter and digitally-intensive receiver for mobile phones in 90-nm CMOS, the authors offering in this paper are view into the future of highly integrated RF circuits. First experimental designs in 45-nm CMOS reveal highly unfriendly environment for analog and RF circuits design. The radio architecture to be successful must further transform the conventional voltage domain into high-speed and high-precision operation of… CONTINUE READING
