The joint design of the analog front-end and of the digital baseband algorithms has become an important field of research for a few years because it enables the wireless system and chip designers to better trade the communication performance with the production cost.
Unfortunately the existing designs apply this approach rather opportunistically to solve a well-determined problem. There is clearly a lack of a global approach.
The aim of this Digital Compensation for Analog Front Ends by Francois Horlin and Andre Bourdoux book is to propose a systematic approach to design a digital communication system. In particular, we will present how our methodology can be applied to the emerging wireless communication systems.
As such, this Digital Compensation for Analog Front Ends by Francois Horlin and Andre Bourdoux book will be a valuable reference for wireless system architects and chip designers. More generally, our Digital Compensation for Analog Front Ends by Francois Horlin and Andre Bourdoux book intends to be cross-disciplinary and to cover in detail the digital compensation of many non-idealities, for a broad class of broadband emerging standards and with a system approach in the design of the receiver algorithms.
In particular, system strategies for joint estimation of synchronization and front-end non-ideality parameters will be emphasized.
This approach is actually linked with the in-depth expertise that has been developed in the wireless research group of IMEC where the authors have spent many years and have been involved in projects covering the main broadband wireless standards.
The organization of the Digital Compensation for Analog Front Ends by Francois Horlin and Andre Bourdoux book is also very important to bring the reader up-to-date with the main topic and to assist him/her in gradually absorbing the important and vast material.
We cover in the first chapter a detailed introduction of the emerging wireless standards, which is essential in understanding the rest of the Digital Compensation for Analog Front Ends by Francois Horlin and Andre Bourdoux book, followed in the second chapter by a detailed description of the front-end non-idealities.
From this point, the reader is well equipped to understand what happens when the topics described in the first two chapters are merged, which is the goal of the third chapter.
The last two chapters continue with an indepth coverage of the estimation and compensation algorithms, first for a generic system to understand the methodology and details of the system approach, then for two main emerging standards to be more pragmatic and fully in line with the real world.
