GPS and Galileo: Dual RF Front-end Receiver and Design, Fabrication, & Testby Jaizki Mendizabal Samper
Synopses & Reviews
The First Technical Reference of its Kind. .
When Europe launches its 30-satellite Galileo system, the aided navigation industry will be dramatically transformed. The only practical reference to keep circuit designers up to date regarding this momentous event. GPS and Galileo walks you through the processes of designing, fabricating, and testing the next generation of RF front-end receivers and provides all the necessary standard specifications you will need. Architecture selection, IC design, manufacturing, measuring, and validation are all covered in depth. . .
