Maintaining Receiver Sensitivity in the Presence of High-Power RF Blockers

With the massive number of wireless devices in everything around us with the expansion of IoT, wireless blockers are becoming more dense across the frequency spectrum. This workshop contribution will review filtering techniques to maintain receiver sensitivity in environments with a large number of close in frequency blockers. The talk will review state-of-the-art techniques to achieve very high power blocker tolerance in CMOS processes, including N-path filters and mixer-first receivers.
