RF Front-End Design Considerations
RF Front-End Design ConsiderationsRF front-end design requires attention to a number of parameters, notably the receiver link budget, analog-to-digital conversion, dynamic range, image rejection, and RF preselection. These general parameters have been discussed previously in this book. Here, the focus is specific to SDR-based systems. In addition, certain concepts explained elsewhere are summarized for the convenience of the reader.
Receiver Link Budget The receiver link budget is built from knowledge of key operating parameters, as discussed in the following sections.
