Author(s): tegrated Frequency Synthesis for Convergent Wireless Solutions By Jad G. Atallah, Mohammed Ismail (a
This book describes the design and implementation of an electronic subsystem called the frequency synthesizer, which is a very important building block for any wireless transceiver. The discussion includes several new techniques for the design of such a subsystem which include the usage modes of the wireless device, including its support for several leading-edge wireless standards. This new perspective for designing such a demanding subsystem is based on the fact that optimizing the performance of a complete system is not always achieved by optimizing the performance of its building blocks separately. This book provides hands-on examples of this sort of co-design of optimized subsystems, which can make the vision of an always-best-connected scenario a reality.
