Complex RF Mixers, Zero IF Architecture, and Advanced Algorithms: The Black Magic in Next-Generation SDR Transceivers

This paper was an Outstanding Paper Award finalist at EDI CON USA 2017

There is an interesting interaction between complex mixers, zero-IF architecture, and advanced algorithm development. The objective of this article is to establish the basic fundamentals of each: the principles of operation and the value they deliver in terms of system design, and then to discuss the interdependability of the three.
