Design of Low-Power, Low-Noise Receiver Front-Ends: Wireless vs. Wireline

As wireless and wireline systems continue to push for higher data-rates, their front-ends present increasingly more challenging issues. Noise, linearity, power consumption, and bandwidth create a tight performance envelope that govern receiver designs in both domains, but also raise the possibility of cross-fertilizing ideas between the two. This presentation deals with circuit techniques that alleviate these trade-offs in the context of 5G and 6G radios as well as in wireline/optical systems targeting very high speeds.
