In this paper, new receiver concepts and CMOS circuits for future wireless communications applications are introduced. The concepts derived are applied to a few classes of wireless communications standards that are broad-band at radio frequencies and/or require a broad-band baseband circuitry. Multimode multiband operation and adaptivity as key requirements for future generation receivers are highlighted throughout the paper. The tradeoffs between power consumption, noise figure and linearity performance of low-noise amplifiers, mixers, and intermediate frequency filters are considered too.
