5 Karvonen, Sami, Chargedomain sampling of highfrequency signals with embedded filtering Faculty of Technology, University of Oulu, P.O.Box 4000, FIN University of Oulu, Finland, Department of Electrical and Information Engineering, University of Oulu, P.O.Box 4500, FIN University of Oulu, Finland Acta Univ. Oul. C 233, 2006 Oulu, Finland Abstract Subsampling can be used in a radio receiver to perform signal downconversion and sampleandhold operations in order to relieve the operation frequency and bandwidth requirements of the subsequent discretetime circuitry. However, due to the inherent aliasing behaviour of wideband noise and interference in subsampling, and the difficulty of implementing appropriate bandpass antialiasing filtering at high frequencies, straightforward use of a low subsampling rate can result in significant degradation of the receiver dynamic range. The aim of this thesis is to investigate and implement methods for integrating filtering into highfrequency signal sampling and downconversion by subsampling to alleviate the requirements for additional frontend filters and to mitigate the effects of noise and outofband signal aliasing, thereby facilitating use in integrated highquality radio receivers. The chargedomain sampling technique studied here allows simple integration of both continuousand discretetime filtering functions into highfrequency signal sampling. Gated current integration results in a lowpass sin(x)/x(sinc(x)) response capable of performing builtin antialiasing filtering in baseband signal sampling. Weighted integration of several successive current samples can be further used to obtain an embedded discretetime finiteimpulseresponse (FIR) filtering response, which can be used for internal antialiasing and imagerejection filtering in the downconversion of bandpass signals by subsampling. The detailed analysis of elementary chargedomain sampling circuits presented here shows that the use of integrated FIR filtering with subsampling allows acceptable noise figures to be achieved and can provide effective internal antialiasing rejection. The new methods for increasing the selectivity of elementary chargedomain sampling circuits presented here enable the integration of advanced, digitally programmable FIR filtering functions into highfrequency signal sampling, thereby markedly relieving the requirements for additional antialiasing, image rejection and possibly even channel selection filters in a radio receiver. BiCMOS and CMOS IF sampler implementations are presented in order to demonstrate the feasibility of the chargedomain sampling technique for integrated antialiasing and imagerejection filtering in IF signal quadrature downconversion by subsampling. Circuit measurements show that this sampling technique for builtin filtering results in an accurate frequency response and allows the use of high subsampling ratios while still achieving a competitive dynamic range. Keywords: chargedomain, FIR filtering, quadrature downconversion, radio receivers, sampling, subsampling

14 1 Introduction 1.1 Motivation and aim of the research The increasing of radio receiver integration level has been under intensive research for over a decade. The wellknown advantages of increased integration lie in lower manufacturing costs due to the smaller circuit area, and in the reduced need for external discrete components, usually also leading to decreased overall power consumption, which is especially important for handheld devices. Several new architectural solutions have been presented [1], [2], and already mature topologies, such as the direct conversion receiver, have been reused along with sensible circuitlevel solutions [3] to overcome the problems associated with the low integration level of traditional heterodyne receivers. The use of these architectures, along with conventional continuoustime (CT) analogue circuit design techniques, such as multiplying mixers, variable gain amplifiers and CT baseband filters, has resulted in highlyintegrated receiver chip implementations for widely used mobile phone standards such as GSM [4]. Receiver topologies based fundamentally on analogue signal processing nevertheless often require advanced technologies such as BiCMOS/SiGe BiCMOS for successful implementation, and may possess poor scalability for integration in the most modern submicrometer CMOS processes, which are required for costefficient realization of the baseband signal processing functions in the receiver [5]. A different, very straightforward solution for increasing the receiver integration level is to transfer the signal sampling and analoguetodigital (A/D) interface from the baseband to higher frequencies, i.e. to an IF, or optimally directly to RF, and to use a highspeed A/D converter to enable further signal processing to take place in the digital domain. As an inherent advantage, digital signal processing allows elimination of the nonidealities of analogue signal processing, such as device noise and nonlinearities, and of component mismatches. Technological progress towards diminished transistor feature size, especially in pure CMOS processes, also favours an increased level of digital signal processing in receiver implementation, since increasing switching speeds of MOS transistors allow dense integration of large amounts of highspeed digital logic on the same chip with the receiver frontend [5],[6],[7]. A fully softwaredefined radio [8], and even a partially programmable radio supporting multiple wireless standards would directly benefit from radio
15 14 architectures based mostly on digital signal processing and digital controllability. However, the brute force method of implementing a highresolution bandpass A/D converter at a high frequency not only imposes very demanding requirements on the dynamic range of the converter, but usually also results in markedly increased overall power dissipation in the receiver. Instead of directly converting a highfrequency bandpass signal into digital form, a subsampling frontend can be used to simultaneously perform the tasks of frequency downconversion and sampleandhold operation prior to A/D conversion at the downconverted frequency [9]. Since the operation frequency of discretetime (DT) signal processing blocks following the frontend sampler is decreased and their bandwidth constraints are relieved, the use of a subsampling downconverter can lead to decreased overall power dissipation but still allow the use of mostly discretetime and digital signal processing techniques to achieve a high integrability in an advanced CMOS technology. It has proved difficult, however, to realize the required appropriate bandpass antialiasing filtering and obtain adequate noise performance in highfrequency operation with conventional straightforward implementations of subsampling circuits [10], which has prevented their use in demanding wireless applications. The aim of this thesis is to investigate and implement methods for integrating filtering into highfrequency signal sampling and subsampling downconversion operation in order to mitigate the effects of noise and outofband signal aliasing and to relieve the requirements for additional CT antialiasing filters prior to the sampler, thereby enabling its use in highlyintegrated highquality radio receivers. The thesis specifically concentrates on a sampling technique based on gated integration of the signal current, or the accumulation of charge samples into a sampling capacitor and on the further processing of the integrated samples to create various DT filtering functions embedded into the sampling operation. In addition to internal antialiasing filtering, the chargedomain sampling technique investigated here can also be used for complex and imagerejection filtering to enable quadrature (I/Q) downconversion by subsampling, and, furthermore, even for partial channel selection filtering to relieve the requirements for additional subsequent filters in a radio receiver chain. 1.2 Organization of the thesis The thesis is organized as follows. The principle of frequency downconversion by subsampling is presented in Chapter 2, the latter part of which is devoted to discussing problems related to realizing adequate antialiasing filtering and achieving a high dynamic range with conventional elementary subsampling circuits. Chapter 3 presents the fundamentals of the chargedomain sampling technique and describes how the technique can be utilized to implement elementary antialiasing and imagerejection filtering functions embedded into highfrequency signal sampling and subsampling downconversion operation. The first part of Chapter 4 presents briefly the contents and contributions of the original publications, and the latter part discusses the performance of chargedomain sampling circuits in detail and provides some further developments and clarifications to the ideas described in the original papers. A discussion is given in Chapter 5, and the final conclusions are drawn in Chapter 6.
16 2 Subsampling circuits 2.1 Frequency downconversion by subsampling The wellknown Nyquist criterion sets the condition for a usable sampling rate for baseband (i.e. lowpass) signals. The minimum sampling frequency in baseband sampling is given by f s,min =2f B, where f B is the bandwidth of the baseband signal. The Nyquist criterion ensures that the spectral images of the sampled signal will not overlap in the frequency domain. In addition, since the whole frequency axis will be mapped onto the frequency region [f s /2, f s /2] in the sampling process, limiting of the input bandwidth of a lowpass sampler will prevent signals with frequencies higher than the Nyquist frequency f N =f s /2 from folding on top of the desired baseband signal, causing degradation in the signaltonoise ratio (SNR) of the sampled signal. In a practical radio receiver chain, the input bandwidth of the baseband sampler can be limited by a CT lowpass antialiasing filter that simultaneously acts as a channel selection filter prior to A/D conversion [4]. Due to operation at low frequencies, the required stopband attenuation is usually relatively easy to achieve with integrated filters. If necessary, it is possible to sample the signal at a higher rate than f s,min, i.e. to use some amount of oversampling, to further relieve the stopband suppression requirement for the lowpass antialiasing filter. In order to profit to a maximal extent from the benefits of digital signal processing, the received analogue signal should be digitized as early as possible in the receiver chain. However, transferring the A/D interface directly from the baseband to higher frequencies, e.g. to a high IF, by following the Nyquist criterion for lowpass signals would markedly increase the bandwidth and sampling frequency requirements of the A/D converter. In addition, since the bandwidth of a modulated bandpass signal is usually a fraction of its center frequency, this approach seems highly inefficient, as it is in principle advantageous to use a sampling frequency which is only twice the information bandwidth. Unlike baseband sampling circuits, downconversion circuits based on subsampling take advantage of the spectral aliasing resulting from violation of the Nyquist condition for baseband signals. The subsampling downconversion operation of a realvalued bandlimited bandpass signal is illustrated in Fig. 1.

Downconversion of a bandlimited realvalued bandpass signal by subsampling. (a) Subsampler block diagram. (b) Spectrum of the bandlimited bandpass signal. (c) Spectrum of the subsampled signal. As with a baseband sampler, the input bandwidth of a subsampler must also be limited by an antialiasing filter. In subsampling, however, a bandpass filter is used to select the desired signal band around a desired center frequency f c prior to the sampling operation. The spectrum of the bandlimited realvalued bandpass signal is shown in Fig. 1 (b). As a result of sampling at a rate lower than twice the highest frequency component of the bandpass input signal, the signal spectrum is downconverted to a new, lower center frequency f 0 =f c kf s and is replicated in the frequency domain at intervals of the subsampling frequency f s. It is easy to conclude from the idealized spectrum of the subsampled signal shown in Fig. 1 (c) that, in order to avoid overlapping of the spectral replicas and thereby degradation of the receiver SNR, the bandwidth of a realvalued bandpass signal must theoretically be strictly limited to f B f s /2. In addition, the center frequency f c of the signal must be selected so that its lower f L =f c f B /2 and higher f H =f c +f B /2 band edges reside in between two adjacent multiples of half of the sampling frequency f s /2. The condition for the appropriate f s can be formulated mathematically as [11] 2f H k f 2f L s k , (1)
18 17 where k= 1,..., f H f B. The notation x denotes the largest integer x. It should be emphasized that without the proper bandpass antialiasing filtering, any unwanted signal, including noise and interference, situated at the frequency kf s ±f 0, k=integer, would be downconverted on top of the wanted signal due to subsampling. In general, for all modulated bandpass signals excluding simple amplitude modulation, the generation of quadrature, i.e. real (I) and imaginary (Q), components is required at the latest in conjunction with downconversion to dc in order to avoid information loss due to overlapping of the signal s negative and positive frequency content. In subsampling downconversion of realvalued bandpass signals, overlapping of the negative and positive frequency components is avoided by performing downconversion to a new center frequency near dc and by selecting the sampling frequency appropriately according to (1). The generation of quadrature components prior to downconversion by subsampling, or within the subsampling operation itself, enables direct downconversion to dc and simultaneous ideal extension of the bandwidth of the bandpass signal to be equal to the subsampling frequency. Direct downconversion of a bandlimited bandpass signal to dc by subsampling is illustrated in Fig. 2.

19 18 The realvalued bandlimited bandpass signal x(t) of Fig. 2 (b) is translated into a complex bandpass, also known as analytic, signal x c (t) in Fig. 2 (c) by suppressing the negative (i.e. image band) frequency content of the signal. A perfect attenuation of the image signal components could ideally be achieved using the Hilbert transform, which shifts the phase of all input frequency components of the Q branch by 90 degrees [12]. The impulse response of the ideal Hilbert transform is noncausal, however, and therefore not physically realizable with practical circuits. In practice, the negative frequencies can be suppressed by some form of complex filtering, such as CT complex bandpass filters [13]. Since integrated complex bandpass filters passing only the positive portion of the desired signal are difficult to implement at the high input frequencies involved in subsampling, complex bandstop filters that merely reject the image band frequencies realized with a simple passive RCCR network [14], or with asymmetric polyphase networks [15], are usually preferred. After image rejection, the complex bandpass signal can be directly quadrature downconverted to dc by selecting the k th multiple of the subsampling frequency be equal to the center frequency of the signal, i.e., kf s =f c. The spectrum of the subsampled complex signal is shown in Fig. 2 (d), inspection of which reveals that when direct downconversion to dc by subsampling is employed, the bandwidth of the complex bandpass signal can ideally be equal to the subsampling frequency without any overlapping of the sampled signal spectral replicas. In practice, however, the achievable rejection of the image signal band, or image rejection ratio (IMR), is limited by the constraints of the physical quadrature generation method, and also circuit mismatches. The finite IMR results in aliasing of the attenuated image band signal on top of the desired signal, resulting in degradation in the output SNR. The negative frequency content of the realvalued bandpass signal can also be rejected within the subsampling operation itself. In quadrature generation methods based on the secondorder sampling principle [16],[17],[18], the I channel samples are taken at time instants nt s at a sampling rate f s =1/Τ s. As in the subsampling of a complex bandpass signal, shown in Fig. 2, f s determines the spectral location of the sampled signal and can be chosen appropriately in order to achieve downconversion by subsampling. The Q channel samples are acquired at the same sampling rate f s, but with a delay ΔΤ in relation to the I channel samples at time instants nt s ΔT. When ΔT fulfils the condition [18] 2k ± 1 ΔT = , k = 0123,,,,, (2) 4f c the sampled I and Q channel components of the bandpass input signal with a center frequency f c have the same amplitude and a phase difference of 90 degrees at f c, hence ideally yielding the perfect Hilbert transform for the signal component at f c. For input frequencies other than f c, the phase difference of the sampled I and Q components deviates from the desired 90 degrees, resulting in finite rejection of the image signal. The effects of an imperfect Hilbert transform in secondorder sampling can minimized if the signal bandwidth is relatively small compared with f c [17]. It is worth noticing that in principle, since the phase error arising from the constant ΔT between the quadrature channel samples is known in advance, it is also possible to perform compensating phaseshifting filtering in
20 19 the digital domain to minimize its effects [19]. However, due to timing mismatches in analogue sampler implementations, ΔT can be different from the desired value, hence resulting in an unknown phase error and degradation of IMR. It should be noted that delaying the acquisition of the Q channel samples in secondorder sampling can be thought of as an elementary DT complex filtering operation embedded into the sampling process. The ideal builtin complex filtering function of the secondorder sampler can be described with the transfer function H c () f = 1 + j e j2πfδt (3) which has a single notch over the image band at f c, as illustrated by the magnitude response in Fig. 3. Hence, when used for subsampling, the whole secondorder sampling process can be described as a combination of two sequential signal processing operations: elementary imagerejecting complex filtering due to the time delay between the two quadrature channel samples, and quadrature downconversion of the filtered signal by subsampling Amplitude [db] f c 0 f c Frequency Fig. 3. Ideal magnitude response of a simple secondorder sampling circuit. 2.2 Problems of subsampling Whereas in baseband sampling the realization of appropriate antialiasing filtering is relatively straightforward and easily achieved with integrated lowpass filters, the achievement of adequate bandpass antialiasing filtering in subsampling can result in a need for expensive offchip filters. In addition to attenuating strong interfering signals near unwanted multiples of the subsampling frequency, the bandpass antialiasing filter also has to suppress the wideband noise present at the input of the sampler before the subsampling operation causes it to fold on the Nyquist band of the sampling frequency. To obtain a deeper insight into the problem of achieving adequate noise performance in subsampling, let us consider the noise figure of the simple voltagedomain subsampler described in Fig. 4 (a). Ideally the input bandwidth the simple subsampler would be limited by a steep bandpass

In practice, the realization of such a filter at RF would require a very high filter quality factor (f c /f B ) of the order of several thousands, which is not realizable with integrated components. In addition, to enable downconversion of multiple channels with different center frequencies by changing the subsampling frequency, the narrowband antialiasing filter bandwidth would have to be tunable. Hence, a practical bandpass antialiasing filter can merely be used to select the receive (RX) band of the input signal at RF. Provided that the impedance Z o seen towards the output of the bandpass antialiasing filter is small compared with the onresistance R on of the sampling switch, and the ontime of the sampling switch is long compared with the time constant R on C s of the sampling loop [20], the rms noise power at the output of the sampler of Fig. 4 (a) can be approximated with kt N out( rms) C s B neq N in, (4) where B neq is the noise bandwidth of the frontend filter and N in =V 2 n,in (f) represents the wideband noise at the input of the sampler, which is assumed for simplicity to have a white spectral density. The sampled output noise consists of the kt/c noise component attributable to the thermal noise V 2 n,ron (f)=4ktr on of the sampling switch and the wideband frontend noise filtered by the antialiasing filter. A narrowband bandpass antialiasing filter with B neq << would clearly minimize the contribution of the frontend noise to the output noise of the subsampler. To consider only the intrinsic noise figure of the simple subsampler, let us assume that no additional antialiasing filter is used at the frontend of the sampler. In such a case both the wideband input noise N in of the sampler and the thermal noise 4kTR on of the sampling
