3.1 High-level analog/digital partitioning in low-power signal processing applications ",Stephane Donnay , Georges Gielen , and Willy Sansen - Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Dep. Elektrotechniek, ESAT-MICAS Kardinaal Mercierlaan 94, B-3001 Heverlee, Belgium

Abstract In this paper a methodology is presented that automates the analog/digital partitioning in low-power signal processing applications. The methodology is illustrated with the high-level design of the baseband signal processing circuits of a direct conversion receiver. The optimal translation of system-level specifications into sub-block specifications is performed at the same time while computing the optimal trade-off between analog filtering and digital filtering. Experimental results are presented.
