Evaluating Performance Tradeoffs in a Dual-Mode, W-CDMA/EDGE Digital IF Receiver
Design How-To 10/7/2002 Post a comment
The need for and use of multi-band phones is rapidly increasing. Agilent EEsof EDA's Kal Kalbasi examines performance tradeoffs in a dual-mode phone that supports both the Wideband Code Division Multiple
Access (W-CDMA 3GPP) and Enhanced Data rates for GSM Evolution (EDGE) standards. Kal also discusses the use of Error Vector Magnitude (EVM) measurements as an alternative to BER for faster simulations of receiver front-end performance.
