Abstract

The emergence of new applications and services raises consumer expectations regarding future radio systems’ performance. However, radio design is becoming more challenging due to multi-standard functionality, spectrum crowdedness and harsh operating environments. In order to keep pace with the emerging requirements, notable enhancements in radiofrequency design approaches are required. At this regard, several design challenges should be addressed especially in terms of productivity, design collaboration, automation and reuse as well as ensuring better technology insertion. To tackle all these challenges, we have proposed in recent research publications a proposal of a new radiofrequency design framework based on hardware abstraction. We have particularly detailed its key foundations: a five-step design scheme that is streamlined to a novel abstraction strategy and built around a multidimensional data structure, namely the Q-matrix. We have undertaken the validation process of the proposed framework through selected design case studies corresponding to real-world applications. In this technical report, we present in some detail the framework validation results for the design of power attenuation and radiofrequency translation devices. Two scenarios were investigated and the overall design process was detailed.
