Automatic Gain Control: Techniques and Architectures for RF by Juan Pablo Alegre Pérez

By Juan Pablo Alegre Pérez

This e-book analyzes computerized achieve keep an eye on (AGC) loop circuits. the most goal of this publication is to illustrate AGC ideas within the surroundings of instant receivers, commonly in instant receivers with stringent constraints in settling-time and large dynamic variety, akin to WLAN and Bluetooth receivers. on account that feedforward AGCs current nice merits during this context, instead to traditional suggestions AGCs, this publication features a distinct examine of feedforward AGCs layout –at the extent of uncomplicated AGC cells, in addition to the method point, together with their major features and performance.

  • Provides an entire evaluate of automated achieve keep watch over loops, protecting either suggestions and feedforward methods;
  • Describes the whole layout stream of the most blocks utilized in AGC circuits (PGAs/VGAs, top detectors and regulate voltage new release circuits), contemplating low-voltage low-power restrictions;
  • Includes genuine AGC architectures carried out as a basic goal electronic feedforward CMOS AGC, a completely analogue feedforward AGC and a mixed feedforward/feedback CMOS AGC

An analysis has been made which, though not exhaustive, it highlights each of the main topology properties. Furthermore, Simulink-Matlab toolbox has been employed to verify these results by behavioural simulation. Output Amplitude (V) Fig. 05 0 0 t (us) Each architecture offers different advantages and drawbacks, which must be taken into account when choosing one for a target application.
