The past several years have successfully brought all-digital techniques to the RF frequency synthesis, which could arguably be considered one of the last strong bastions of the traditionally-analog design approaches. With their high sensitivity and high dynamic range requirements, the RF circuits have long had a good excuse to avoid any possible source of… CONTINUE READING
