Circuit Techniques for Next Generation Wireless Communication

Bram NautaDirector, Integrated Circuit Design GroupUniversity 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 selfinterference
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 was born in Hengelo, The Netherlands. In 1987,
he received the MSc degree (cum laude) in electrical engineering
from the University of Twente, Enschede, The Netherlands. In
1991, he received the PhD degree from the same university and
joined Philips Research, Eindhoven the Netherlands. In 1998,
he returned to the University of Twente, where he is currently a
distinguished professor, heading the IC Design group.
He 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 the Vice President of
the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society.
