Advanced characterization of receivers for use in mobile communication systems
The signals of future mobile communications systems need to use higher order modulation schemes to enable increased data throughput. This put new demands on the receivers in terms of noise figure and linearity. Furthermore, there is an increasing interest in using multiband systems, with several consecutive carriers. It might therefore not be possible to protect the receiver with filters, and hence other carriers act as interferers. It is therefore needed to characterize the performance of receivers when used in multi standard communication systems to understand what the limitations are.
