Towards harmonious coexistence : linear and nonlinear techniques for interference management in RFICs
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis has sought to provide another look at RF interference at the fundamental level. While previous interference control and regulation methods have existed in the literature, they were more focused on preventing the interference from happening. On the contrary, we have taken a different approach of correcting the interference once it has happened. This allows the transmitters to be more nonlinear, passive filter design to be eased, and receivers to be aware of interference problems. Under this unifying theme of building intelligent radios where receivers are more cognizant of the transmission environment, we have presented a number of architectures.
