Résumé: The growth of wireless communications worldwide has led to the emergence of several cellular wireless standards such as GSM, DCS, PCS and UMTS. These standards, together with the more recent wireless data systems, as WLAN standards, drive the development in the wireless domain. In order to obtain low-cost solutions, the optimal multi-standard terminal should be as simple and small as possible and should offer the integration of heterogeneous technologies. The advent of high-yield bulk acoustic wave (BAW) technology compatible with VLSI process, offers some new opportunities for radiofrequency (RF) circuit integration. In this talk, we detail issues concerning the implementation of BAW filters and duplexers and their potential impact on the RF receiver and transmitter performances.

Note biographique: Dr. Eric KERHERVE joined IPB ENSEIRB-MATMECA in the Southwest of FRANCE in 1996, as an Associate Professor. Since 1991, he pursues his research activities at IMS, the microelectronics laboratory of the University of BORDEAUX and IPB, focusing on the modeling of RF/mmW integrated transformers, on the design of RF BAW filters and RF/mmW amplifiers.

From 1993 to 2009, Dr. KERHERVE was teaching classes on Integrated Power Amplifier Design, and Communication Circuits Design, at IPB and the University of BORDEAUX.
Since 1998, Dr. KERHERVE is the head of Microwave Circuits and Systems team at IMS, a research team in which 4 faculties and 12 Ph. D. students are involved.
In 2006, he became a full Professor at EE’s department of ENSEIRB. Since 2007, he is Chairman of the department of electrical engineering.
