In this chapter, the author discusses the art of receiver design. This chapter is largely about engineering trade-offs. The author discusses the interaction of filters, component noise, component linearity, mixers, oscillators, and transmission lines in cascade. The authors will first examine gain distribution in a cascade of components. The authors will then discuss frequency planning and conversion schemes in detail. Finally, the authors will look at some example designs.
