A new approach to design wireless receivers

Project description

Tuning into a novel transition for radio receivers

While most analogue devices have transitioned into the digital realm, radio receivers remain complex analogue electronic circuits. They owe their complexity to the need for a variety of analogue circuits including filters, mixers, amplifiers and analogue-to-digital converters, which are necessary because of the use of linear amplifiers. This complexity makes radio receivers costly in terms of both expense and energy. The EU-funded High-Risk-No-Gain project aims to change this by getting rid of the need for linear amplifiers. It will connect the analogue-to-digital converters almost directly with the antenna, with the only part in between being an N-path filter. This should allow for cheaper, less energy-consuming and smaller radio receivers.
