ABSTRACT Time Domain Measurements are required to analyze and interpret transient disturbing RF signals. In the area of future automotive applications, transient RF disturbances are becoming critical because comfort options like Bluetooth connection, external devices with complex integrated RF functionality (automotive WLAN, UMTS, GSM, WCDMA, MIMO devices, multiband smart phones, Net-books) have to interface with integrated car entertainment and control systems. Due to the technical concept of such wireless communication networks with digital modulation schemes, the interferences are often short events with transient characteristics. The detection and reproducible measurement of such signals is difficult because of missing trigger signals and can be performed today with Time Domain Measurement Systems using fast A/D converters, digital filters and the Fourier Analysis to transform the measured data into the frequency domain.

    ABSTRACT: A novel technique of the electric-or E-field extraction from the magnetic-or H-near-field in time-domain is reported. This technique is based on the use of the Maxwell-Ampere relation associated to the plane wave spectrum (PWS) transform. It is useful for the E-near-field computations and measurements which are practically complicated in time-domain in particular, for the EMC applications. The considered EM-field radiation is generated by a set of electric dipoles excited by an ultra-short duration current having frequency bandwidth of about 10-GHz. The presented EM-field calculation technique is carried out by taking into account the evanescent wave effects. In the first step, the time-dependent H-field data mapped in 2-D plan placed at the height z 0 above the radiating devices are transposed in frequency-dependent data through the fast Fourier transform. In order to respect the near-field approach, the arbitrary distance z 0 between the EM-field mapping plan and radiating source plan should be below one-sixth of the excitation signal minimal wavelength. In the second step, one applies the PWS transform to the obtained frequency-data. Then, through the Maxwell-Ampere relation, one can extract the E-field from the calculated PWS of the H-field. In the last step, the inverse fast Fourier transform of the obtained E-field gives the expected time-dependent results. The relevance of the proposed technique was confirmed by considering a set of five dipole sources placed arbitrarily in the horizontal plan equated by z = 0 and excited by a pulse current having amplitude of 50 mA and half-width of about 0.6 ns. As expected, by using the H x , H y and H z 2-D data calculated with Matlab in the rectangular plan placed at z 0 = 3 mm and z 0 = 5 mm above the radiating source, it was demonstrated that Corresponding author: B.

    ABSTRACT: This paper presents a fully integrated 5.8-GHz dedicated short-range communication transceiver with a 10-A interference-aware wake-up receiver (WuRx) for Chinese elec-tronic toll collection system terminals that can operate with a low standby and operating current consumption. To reduce the current consumption, a high-gain RF envelope detector using a voltage-boosting method is proposed for both the WuRx and receiver (Rx) while the proposed high-power ASK modulator extends output dynamic range in low power consumption. Ad-ditionally, a delay-based bandpass filter is adopted in the WuRx to filter out interference from automotive applications, thus in-creasing the battery lifetime by reducing the probability of a false wake-up. The proposed transceiver is fabricated using 0.13-m CMOS technology with a chip size of 2.8 mm for the target frequency range of 5.8 GHz. The measured results demonstrate sensitivities of 44 and 61 dBm for the WuRx and Rx, dissi-pating currents of 10 A and 19 mA from 3.3-V supply voltage, respectively. The transmitter exhibits a normal output power of 5 dBm at an operating current of 46 mA. Index Terms—CMOS integrated circuits (ICs), dedicated short-range communication (DSRC), electronic toll collection system (ETCS), interference suppression, radio transceiver, wake-up receiver (WuRx).
