// Lecture 1: RF Systems & Specifications

// Instruction

// Question 1 Design a simple mass-market WLAN system: - f = 5..6GHz - BW = 20MHz - SNRmin = 11dB - Range = 100m LOS Find a consistent (but not unique) set of parameters: - Transmit power - Receive noise figure - Receiver IP3 - Receiver selectivity Make any reasonable assumption required

// Question Calculate required transmit power if: Frequency = 2.5GHz range = 10m sensitivity = -70dBm omnidirectional antennas LOS

// Solution PRX=-70dBm GRX= GTX=0dB Wavelength=0.12m PTX =0.11mW Low power! Cheap AA NiCd battery: 1.5Wh => 14000 hr!

// Question: -10 dBm frequency 2 -40 dBm P out What is IIP2 and OIP2 assuming a power gain of 7 dB

// Two signals at the input of a non-linear system Yield a lot! of other frequency components ω1ω1 ω2ω2

// A forest of frequencies

// Graphical overview of inter-modulation products

// Calculation of IP2 IIP2: input power where wanted power = second order power (extrapolated point).

// Formula for OIP2 (small signal extrapolation!) P fund,out ΔP frequency P out (dBm) 2

// Answer The input IIP2 is OIP2 divided by the power gain (so -7 dB)

// Calculation of IP3 IIP3: input power where wanted power = the third order power (extrapolated point).

// Formula for OIP3 (when not in compression) P fund,out ΔP freq. P out (dBm) 2

// RX NF Exercise: Calculate RX minimum NF for: Psensitivity = -70dBm BW = 20MHz SNRmin=15dB

// RX NF Solution: P RX =-70dBm BW=20MHz SNR min  15dB Equivalent input noise: -85dBm Equivalent input noise density: -158dBm/Hz Thermal noise density (kT) : -174dBm/Hz Total transceiver NF=16dB Note: need to include losses for antenna filter, switches, antenna loss (total e.g. 3dB) and baseband implementation loss to get RX IC NF

// RX ADC Exercise Bandwidth = 1MHz max signal = -20dBm min signal = -70dBm SNRmin = 11dB Calculate ADC minimum sampling rate & minimum # bits assuming perfect analog channel selectivity but no AGC, and ADC noise contribution less than 1dB

// RX ADC Solution: Bandwidth = 1MHz, sample rate >=2Msps Resolution: max signal = -20dBm min signal = -70dBm equivalent input noise = -81dBm equivalent ADC input noise = -91dBm Dyn range: 71dB Effective resolution: >= 12bit
