Widely Tunable Receivers and Filters for Next-Generation Communications, BWAC Core Project
This project studies architectures and techniques to create wideband receivers and tunable filters for RF through mmWave systems. The work aims to develop solutions that can operate over 5-30GHz or 5-50GHz, in support of digital beamforming or software-defined radios applications. To enhance dynamic range, the project focuses on reflection-mode filters and direct-conversion receivers with frequency-translated feedback. NC State researchers will explore approaches to improve these systems.

In this project, we will study architectures and techniques to realize wideband receivers and tunable filters for RF through mmWave systems. The work will target solutions that can operate over 5-30 GHz or 5-50 GHz, in support of digital beamforming or software-defines radios applications. Our work will target widely tunable reflection-mode filters and direct-conversion receivers with frequency-translated feedback, exploring approaches to greatly enhance the dynamic range in these systems.
