Advances in Analog and RF IC Design for Wireless Communication Systems gives technical introductions to the latest and most significant topics in the area of circuit design of analog/RF ICs for wireless communication systems, emphasizing wireless infrastructure rather than handsets. The book ranges from very high performance circuits for complex wireless infrastructure systems to selected highly integrated systems for handsets and mobile devices. Coverage includes power amplifiers, low-noise amplifiers, modulators, analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) and digital-to-analog converters (DACs), and even single-chip radios. This book offers a quick grasp of emerging research topics in RF integrated circuit design and their potential applications, with brief introductions to key topics followed by references to specialist papers for further reading. All of the chapters, compiled by editors well known in their field, have been authored by renowned experts in the subject. Each includes a complete introduction, followed by the relevant most significant and recent results on the topic at hand. This book gives researchers in industry and universities a quick grasp of the most important developments in analog and RF integrated circuit design.

About the Editors

Gabriele Manganaro

Gabriele Manganaro holds a Dr.Eng. Degree and a Ph.D. degree in Electronic Engineering from the University of Catania, Italy. He did research with ST Microelectronics and was researcher/lecturer at Texas A&M University (USA). He was a senior IC designer of data converters at Texas Instruments and then Director of Analog Baseband Design at Engim Inc. He worked for National Semiconductor holding various positions in data converter design in Salem (NH, USA) and Munich (Germany) including Design Director for High Speed Data Conversion and is now Engineering Director in High Speed Data Conversion at Analog Devices, Wilmington (MA, USA).

He has lectured in Europe and USA and served in technical committees of international conferences including the Data Conversion sub-committee of IEEE Solid-State Circuit Conference. He was Associate Editor, Deputy Editor in Chief and eventually Editor in Chief for IEEE Trans. On Circuits and Systems - Part I.

He has co-authored 60 scientific papers, the books Cellular Neural Networks (Springer, 1999) and Advanced Data Converters (Cambridge University Press, 2011), and co-edited the book Advances in Analog and RF IC Design for Wireless Communication Systems (Academic Press, 2013), received 13 US patents, and was (co-) recipient of scientific awards, including the 1999 IEEE Circuits and Systems Outstanding Young Author Award and the 2007 ESSCIRC best paper award.

He is an IEEE Fellow, a Fellow of the IET and a Member of Sigma Xi.
