Abstract

An increased demand for wireless communications is driving semiconductor companies to provide chipset solutions to manufacturers. By providing chipsets, time to market and design responsibilities are reduced for manufacturers. This project investigated a wireless transceiver design based upon Analog Devices products. This paper presents mathematical models of various data transmission schemes, examining their bandwidth efficiency, phase walk, and noise tolerance. Various hardware interfacing solutions are described. Characterization measurements evaluating the system performance confirmed the mathematical modeling results.
