Transceiver Design for Multiband OFDM UWB

Abstract

Ultra-wideband (UWB) is an emerging broadband wireless technology enabling data rates up to Mbps. This paper provides an overview of recent design approaches for several circuit functions that are required for the implementation of multiband OFDM UWB transceivers. A number of transceiver and synthesizer architectures that have been proposed in literature will be reviewed. Although the technology focus will be on CMOS, also some design techniques implemented in BiCMOS technologies will be presented.
