Design State-of-the-Art GPS/Galileo Dual RF Receivers
This authoritative guide walks you through the process of designing, fabricating, and testing a highly integrated, low-noise, low-power, and low-cost RF front-end for GPS and Galileo, the leading satellite-based global navigation systems. Everything from standards analysis to characterization of the design is covered in the book.
GPS & Galileo focuses on developing seamlessly interoperable receivers that can access the wide variety of new services offered by these systems, such as increased service availability, centimeter-sensitive accuracy, emergency management, and data confidentiality. By the end of the book, you will have a prototype that achieves peak performance in terms of gain, NF, and current consumption, making it suitable for any high-accuracy, portable application.
