A 40nm CMOS wideband digital Cartesian push-pull inverted Doherty operating in class-E is presented. Wideband Doherty operation is achieved over a 1.9-to-3GHz frequency band, using an off-chip power combining network. The fully digital transmitter (DTX) provides 25.3dBm peak power with a drain/DTX line-up efficiency (DE/SE) of 58.7%/44.9%,...

This article presents the theory and implementation of a quadrature and differential RF front-end receiver. Combining balun, low-noise amplifier (LNA), mixer, and oscillator in a single stage, the proposed circuit, named the Blixator, is well suited for low-power applications. The baseband's transimpedance amplifier (TIA) also shares part of...

This letter presents a convenient approach based on the two-port kQ-product theory to analyze the influence of interwinding capacitive coupling on the efficiency of the transformer. It is demonstrated that a transformer with proper size can benefit from the interwinding capacitive coupling to maximize its efficiency at a desired frequency....

This thesis investigates the performance limits and design challenges of two current-mode front-end concepts that target WiFi and mm-wave 5G applications, respectively. The first concept is a power amplifier (PA), which operates at 2.4GHz and is driven by a direct-digital RF modulator (DDRM). A design for the PA, which also includes a parallel...

We present a wideband, 12-bit four-way Doherty Cartesian digital transmitter (DTX) featuring an innovative 50%-LO signed I/Q interleaved up-conversion technique that enables close to perfect orthogonal I/Q summation. The DTX incorporates a compact four-way lumped-element Doherty power combining network to enhance its average efficiency at...

Due to the severe cost pressure of consumer electronics, a migration to an advanced nanoscale CMOS processes, which is primarily developed for fast and low-power digital circuits operating at low supply voltages, is necessary, but it forces wireless RF transceivers to exploit more and more digital circuitry. These basic CMOS properties tend to...

This paper presents a wideband 2 13-bit in-phase/quadrature-phase (I/Q) RF digital-to-analog converter-based all-digital modulator realized in 65-nm CMOS. The isolation between I and Q paths is guaranteed employing 25% duty-cycle differential quadrature clocks. With a 1.3-V supply and an on-chip power combiner, the digital I/Q transmitter...

Currently the Doherty Power Amplifier (DPA) is replacing the traditional Class B amplifier in base-station and broadcast applications, as such becoming the preferred choice of industry due to its simplicity and high efficiency performance. In spite of its success, so far practical DPA implementations can provide only a very limited RF bandwidth,...

For impulse radio ultrawideband communications an “antenna plus generator” system is co-designed and an on chip generator is integrated into the antenna. This approach does away with the need for intermediate transmission lines conventionally placed between an RF device/generator and an antenna and therefore eliminates the need for a balun,...
