Direct conversion modulator
Increase in number of radio systems in portable devices
High signal bandwidth and narrow channel bandwidth
Need for low cost,low power and low complexity transmitter architecture
Need for adaptation to several different radio systems
COMPARISON OF RF SYSTEMS
Direct conversion modulation
In-phase and quadrature components.
Let x[n] be a signal such that
xi[n] is called in-phase component
while xq[n] is quadrature component
A reconstruction filter is used to construct a smooth analogue signal from the output of a digital to analogue converter(DAC) or other sampled data output device.
Translates frequency by adding or subtracting local oscillator frequency.
-noise figure 12dB
-Input impedance 50Ώ
-port to port isolation 10-20dB
It includes a voltage level shifting circuit and an Op-amp.
The positive and negative power supply terminal of Op-amp receive a first reference voltage and a second reference voltage outputted from the voltage level shifting circuit.
It keeps a dc voltage level of an output signal to be equal to 0V.
The absolute value of a voltage difference between the first reference voltage and the second reference voltage is equal to VDD.
Thus the circuit operates without risking a high-voltage damage.
Surface Acoustic Wave Filter
It is a small and thin filter using surface acoustic wave(SAW) excited on a piezoelectric substrate.
A SAW filter is an element used for removing noise and interference through selective pass of the bandwidth of a particular frequency.
It uses piezoelectric characteristics that are inter-transducible between electricity and machinery.
A SAW filter is widely used as a band pass filter in communication devices and other electronic devices.
Feeds RF signal to antenna for transmission.
∙Output power +20 to +30dBm
∙Efficiency 30% to 60%
∙Supply Voltage 3.8 to 5.8V
∙Gain 20 to 30 dB
∙Output harmonics -50 to -70 dBc
∙Power control On-off or 1dB steps
∙Stability factor >1
High integration level.
This architecture is flexible.
No need of external filtering.
Eliminates costly external components.
Inherent compactness and ease of integration than heterodyne architecture.
Low noise performance.
Reduced EVM performance.
Direct Digital RF modulator
To provide relief from the problem field produced by direct conversion transmitter, this architecture is established.
LPF-Low Pass Filter
DRFC(Digital to RF converter)
-Gilbert –cell mixer
Direct Digital Synthesis
It is a method of producing an analog waveform-usually a sine wave-by generating a time –varying signal digital form and then performing a digital-to-analog conversion.
It has three main parts,
-Phase to Amplitude Converter
Mixers shifts the frequency spectrum of an input signal.
Gilbert cell uses a linear time varying circuit to achieve time domain multiplication, and hence frequency shifting.
It is a modified differential amplifier, and so it is an active filter.
Missing of analog baseband eliminates the possibility of using reconstruction filtering after D/A converter.
Due to non linear operation, non idealities can be removed.
Modulator structure relatively immune to affects of transistor mismatches.
Good EVM performance and highly beneficial for WCDMA transmitter.
DDRM can directly drive power amplifier without any high selectivity filtering.
Quantization noise level.
Digital signal replicas.
Less sensitive to the drawbacks of CMOS technology scaling.
Compared different radio systems on the basis of channel bandwidth and RF bands.
Discussed the advantages and disadvantages of Direct conversion modulator and its detailed study.
Understood the need for the DDRF modulator through the detailed analysis.
