Circuit Techniques for Next-Generation Wireless Communication
Professor Bram Nauta, University of Twente
Due to the increase of wireless standards using different RF frequencies there is a need to have transceivers that can handle a wide range of RF frequencies. By abandoning the classical narrowband approach, new receiver architectures are explored in which noise and interferer robustness problems have to be solved. At the same time new features are wanted such as spectrum sensing for cognitive radio and self-interference cancelling for future full duplex communication. In this presentation several circuit and system techniques will be illustrated that may enable future radio systems.
Bram Nauta received the M.Sc and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Twente, Enschede, the Netherlands. In 1991 he joined Philips Research, Eindhoven, and in 1998 he returned to the University of Twente. He is currently a distinguished professor, heading the IC Design group. Bram is an IEEE Fellow and has served as the Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits and as program chair of the International Solid State Circuits Conference (ISSCC). Since 2016 he is Vice-President of the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society.
