The lack of a systematic design strategy that can monitor the relation between radio frequency (RF) blocks and analog to digital converter (ADC) is one of the main obstacles for achieving overall system optimization. This paper presents a systematic design flow for mixed signal front-end, based on the translation of ADC parameters into the RF domain. This design flow indicates four variables that can be used for the trade-off between RF and ADC blocks.
