    Complex Signal Processing is Not — Complex

    Abstract: Modern data communication systems often make use of the quadrature relationship between pairs of signals to effectively cancel out-of-band and interfering in-band signal components. The understanding of these systems is often simplified by considering both the signals and system transfer-functions as ‘complex’ quantities. The complex approach is especially useful in highly-integrated multi-standard receivers (both wireless and wired) where the use of narrowband fixed-coefficient filters at the RF and high IF frequencies must be minimized. A tutorial review of complex signal processing emphasizing a graphical and pictorial description rather than an equation-based approach is first presented. Next, a number of classical modulation architectures are described using this formulation. More recent developments such as complex filters, image-reject mixers, low-IF receivers, and over-sampling A/D converters will be discussed. In addition, some new Matlab-based approximation routines for the direct-design of complex filters (both analog and digital) will be described.

    Analog and Mixed-Mode Design

    Using Sub-Micron Technologies

    High-precision analog and mixed-mode design using modern CMOS technologies, with minimum dimensions of 0.13um and smaller, is increasingly difficult primarily due to technology limitations and to reduced voltage head-room limitations. We will first describe typical sub-micron CMOS technologies, and their limitations, as they relate to analog and mixed-mode design. We will next describe circuit and design methodologies and practices suitable for sub-micron technologies which attempt to circumvent many of the limitations. Finally, reliability issues will be described, and a number of issues and considerations specific to analog design using sub-micron technologies will be discussed.

    Ken Martin received his Ph.D. at the Univ. of Toronto in 1980 and was a Professor at UCLA from 1980-1991. He founded the Integrated Circuit and Systems Laboratory (ICSL) at UCLA in 1985. He returned to to the Univ. of Toronto in 1991 to accept an Endowed Professorship in Microelectronics. He is currently on a Leave of Absence while serving as President of Snowbush Microelectronics., an integrated circuits firm specializing in high-speed mixed-mode circuits which Professor Martin and Professor David Johns founded in 1998. Snowbush currently has 24 employees. He has published well over 100 papers and five books and has been recognized through a number of awards and honours including being recognized as a Fellow of the IEEE.
