Description & Coverage
Description:

Radio-frequency (RF) integrated circuits in CMOS technology are gaining increasing popularity in the commercial world, and CMOS technology has become the dominant technology for applications such as GPS receivers, GSM cellular transceivers, wireless LAN, and wireless short-range personal area networks based on IEEE 802.15.1 (Bluetooth) or IEEE 802.15.4 (ZigBee) standards. Furthermore, the increasing interest in wireless technologies and the widespread of wireless communications has prompted an ever increasing demand for radio frequency transceivers.

Wireless Radio-Frequency Standards and System Design: Advanced Techniques provides perspectives on radio-frequency circuit and systems design, covering recent topics and developments in the RF area. Exploring topics such as LNA linearization, behavioral modeling and co-simulation of analog and mixed-signal complex blocks for RF applications, integrated passive devices for RF-ICs and baseband design techniques and wireless standards, this is a comprehensive reference for students as well as practicing professionals.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • CMOS Nanometer Technologies
  • EM/Circuit Co-Simulation
  • Frequency Synchronization

Editor/Author Biographies
Gianluca Cornetta obtained his MSc Degree from Politecnico di Torino (Italy) in 1995 and his PhD from Universidad Politécnica de Cataluña (Spain) in 2001, both in Electronic Engineering. In 2003 he joined Universidad CEU-San Pablo in Madrid (Spain), where he is presently an Associate Professor. Prior to joining Universidad CEU-San Pablo, he was a Lecturer in the Departement of Electronic Engineering of Universidad Politécnica de Cataluña (Spain), a Digital Designer at Infineon Technologies Gmbh (Germany), and an ICT Consultant at Tecsidel SA (Spain) in the field of real-time embedded systems. In 2004 he founded the Department of Electronic System Engineering and Telecommunications, which he chaired until February 2008. He is also a research fellow at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and an invited Professor at the Institut Superieur d’Electronique de Paris (ISEP) where he has taught Wireless System Design in the Advances in Communication Environment (ACE) Master until 2018. His current research interests include RF circuit design for wireless sensor networks, digital communication circuits and distributed real-time embedded systems covering the whole IoT stack from sensor to cloud.
obtained his MSc and PhD Degrees both from Universidad de Vigo, Spain (in 1991 and 1995 respectively). From 1995 to 2005 he has been a Professor at Universidad de Vigo and a visiting scholar to University of Rochester (USA) and University of Essex (UK). Since 2005 he is an Associate Professor at Universidad CEU-San Pablo in Madrid (Spain) where he also chairs the Division of Engineering of the Escuela Politécnica Superior. His research interests include: quantum information processing, quantum optics, optical communications, communication circuits, and applied mathematics problems related with process modelling, optimisation, and data mining.
obtained his MSc and PhD Degrees both from Universidad Politécnica of Madrid. He has over thirty years experience in the IT sector, designing and developing a variety of innovative projects for market-leading companies. During his career he has played different roles and positions of responsibility in various areas of business for which he worked such as production, sales, marketing, communication, and R&D. He is currently a Lecturer at University CEU-San Pablo in Madrid and managing partner of a consultancy company focused on the implementation of change management and BPR for new companies in the digital economy. It has also been evaluating research projects of the European Union and has served on various national and international committees related to marketing and regulation in the field of IT.
