Low-Power CMOS Wireless Communications: A Wideband CDMA System Design by Robert W. Brodersen,Samuel Sheng



Low-Power CMOS Wireless Communications: A Wideband CDMA System Design focuses on the issues behind the development of a high-bandwidth, silicon complementary metal-oxide silicon (CMOS) low-power transceiver system for mobile RF wireless data communications. In the design of any RF communications system, three distinct factors must be considered: the propagation environment in question, the multiplexing and modulation of user data streams, and the complexity of hardware required to implement the desired link. None of these can be allowed to dominate. Coupling between system design and implementation is the key to simultaneously achieving high bandwidth and low power and is emphasized throughout the book. The material presented in Low-Power CMOS Wireless Communications: A Wideband CDMA System Design is the result of broadband wireless systems research done at the University of California, Berkeley. The wireless development was motivated by a much larger collaborative effort known as the Infopad Project, which was centered on developing a mobile information terminal for multimedia content - a wireless `network computer'. The desire for mobility, combined with the need to support potentially hundreds of users simultaneously accessing full-motion digital video, demanded a wireless solution that was of far lower power and higher data rate than could be provided by existing systems. That solution is the topic of this book: a case study of not only wireless systems designs, but also the implementation of such a link, down to the analog and digital circuit level.

This is not a bad book, I could have given it 5 stars. But this book has many flaws:
(1) This book is basically re done by the authors. There are many things not clearly described (Remeber, this is a book, not an academic paper). I have to figure out many things by myself and I am not a novice in CDMA....
(2) The english is not very easy to understand, maybe the author should have taken some writing class.
(3) There are many errors in the numbering of the figure captions.
But generally, this is a book that you need if you want to learn more about CDMA system design. However I think this book can be improved much more than it is now.

I laughed, I cried, I hurled electrons. But seriously, this is an outstanding in-depth treatment of CMOS RF. It's not to be taken lightly; don't try to read this without having some undergrad circuits (and preferably RF) classes.
