Fundamentals of Analog/RF design: Noise, Signal, Power

Analog design does not scale the way digital design does. Namely, as process shrinks, one does not immediately benefit by having reduced power consumption for the same performance. I will show in this post the main constraint involved in analog/RF design: that to maintain a given SNR, a certain amount of power must be consumed […]
