Download Automatic Gain Control: Techniques and Architectures for RF by Juan Pablo Alegre Pérez PDF

By Juan Pablo Alegre Pérez

This e-book analyzes automated achieve keep watch over (AGC) loop circuits. the most target of this booklet is to illustrate AGC options within the atmosphere of instant receivers, quite often in instant receivers with stringent constraints in settling-time and broad dynamic diversity, similar to WLAN and Bluetooth receivers. in view that feedforward AGCs current nice merits during this context, as a substitute to traditional suggestions AGCs, this publication features a distinct examine of feedforward AGCs layout –at the extent of simple AGC cells, in addition to the procedure point, together with their major features and performance.

  • Provides an entire overview of computerized achieve keep an eye on loops, protecting either suggestions and feedforward techniques;
  • Describes the whole layout move of the most blocks utilized in AGC circuits (PGAs/VGAs, top detectors and keep an eye on voltage iteration circuits), contemplating low-voltage low-power restrictions;
  • Includes actual AGC architectures applied as a normal function electronic feedforward CMOS AGC, an absolutely analogue feedforward AGC and a mixed feedforward/feedback CMOS AGC

Nano- and microelectromechanical systems fundamentals of nano- and microengineering

The area now stands on the breaking point of a technological revolution. Micro- and nano-engineering will eventually swap the very nature of such a lot human-made buildings, units, and structures, and may bring about remarkable breakthroughs in a variety of purposes. For it to arrive its complete strength, state-of-the-art engineers needs to comprehend a number of the tools, options, and applied sciences used to formulate, layout, and optimize high-performance micro-electromechanical and nano-electromechanical structures (MEMS and NEMS).

Force Sensors for Microelectronic Packaging Applications (Microtechnology and MEMS)

Meant for wire-bonding and flip-chip packaging pros and for scientists and engineers operating within the box of mechanical microsensors, this functional monograph introduces novel size applied sciences that permit for in situ and real-time exam of actual techniques in the course of the packaging method or in the course of next reliability checks.

Highly Integrated Microfluidics Design

The hot improvement of microfluidics has resulted in the idea that of lab-on-a-chip, the place a number of useful blocks are mixed right into a unmarried machine that may practice complicated manipulations and characterizations at the microscopic fluid pattern. even though, integration of a number of functionalities on a unmarried equipment will be advanced.

12) 18 2â•… AGC Fundamentals so the time constant depends only on certain internal circuit characteristics:  τexp−log = C = constant. 12) is the most popular solution employed to implement AGCs. This has lead many designers to try to implement the VGA with an exponential control voltage [10–13]. This is not difficult if BiCMOS technology is used [14], but the logarithmic block (in dotted lines) is quite complicated to implement in CMOS technologies, and consequently, in some CMOS systems this block is omitted [15].

18) Notice that in this case the settling time is a function of the input variable VREF, indicating that the system is fundamentally nonlinear. 13) is independent of any bias condition, since in this case the circuit is perfectly modelled as a linear system in the logarithmic domain. 1â•… AGC Loop Fundamentals 19 Fig. 11) is not the only way to achieve a constant settling-time. 9), the function of the time constant depends on more parameters which can be employed to fix it to a constant value. In fact, a more general solution would be to consider a variable GM2, while C is kept constant due to the difficulty in varying its value in a continuous way.
