With more upcoming frequency bands used for wireless communication, there is a growing need for transmitters and receivers that can operate at different frequencies in a flexible way. By abandoning the classical narrowband approach, new receiver architectures are explored in which noise and interferer robustness problems have to be solved. In this presentation, several circuit and system techniques will be illustrated that may enable future radio systems, for example: thermal noise cancelling, N-path filters, recent developments in RF channel selective receivers as well as beamforming techniques.
About the speaker: Bram Nauta received the M.Sc degree (cum laude) and PhD degree in electrical engineering from the University of Twente, Enschede, The Netherlands. In 1987 and 1991 respectively. After that, he joined Philips Laboratories Research, Eindhoven the Netherlands. In 1998 he returned to the University of Twente, where he is currently a distinguished professor, heading the IC Design group and the EE department. His current research interest is high-speed analog CMOS circuits, software defined radio, cognitive radio and beamforming.
He served as the Editor-in-Chief (2007-2010) of the IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits and was the 2013 program chair of the International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC). He is currently the President of the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society.
