Abstract:The main goal of this thesis is to investigate the feasibility of a quadrature radio frequency receiver front-end using a second-order sampling topology in CMOS. Second-order sampling combines subsampling with a non-uniform sampling scheme. This non-uniform sampling scheme comprises of two uniform sampling streams with a small time delay between both streams, which allows the generation of an I and Q channel. The second goal is to determine the performance limiting mechanisms in the analog domain. The knowledge of the performance limiting mechanisms is used to implement the critical parts of a low power Bluetooth receiver in CMOS and determine the final performance of such a front-end. It is hoped that new receiver architectures offer new wireless applications, outperform traditional receivers in existing applications or offer additional features.
