Study of multi-channel wideband receiver architectures.

Abstract : This thesis is a partnership between the BL TVFE of NXP Semiconductors and ESIEE. Its goal is to provide a solution to multi-channel reception for cable network. This is linked to the problematic of broadband digitization. In the first part, the state-of-the art of ADCs, parallel architectures (TI and HFB) and sampling methods (bandpass sampling and complex sampling) is recalled. Then we study an architecture called RFFB with a bank of analog filters and a bank of ADCs. We try to reduce the constraints on ADCs, especially the sampling rate with the different sampling. We propose an interesting solution to broadband digitization and compare this solution to a challenging wideband ADC, using the cost function we introduce. This architecture has the major advantage that all the components are feasible, even the ADCs, and it is possible to switch-off subbands to save power. It could be a good solution at the present time but it is not competitive in terms of power consumption and surface. An alternative is proposed in Part 3, where we study Hybrid Filter Banks. It is interesting to study this architecture with realization feasibility in mind. This is why we select a 2-channel HFB with a lowpass filter and a highpass filter as analog filters. Then we propose an efficient optimization algorithm to find the best synthesis filters and reach our targets of distortion and aliasing rejection. An identification of analog filters is also suggested to cope with the issue of sensitivity to analog errors. Finally, a physical realization proves the concept of aliasing rejection and confirms the theoretical issues of this architecture
