The recent and dramatic increase in demand for mobile data communication, driven by consumer devices such as smartphones and tablets, is resulting in heightened technical challenges for the wireless infrastructure that lies as a bridge in-between these mobile terminals and the wired network transferring the data between final users. Several challenges arise in the design of the electronics behind the wireless infrastructure access points, or base-stations. This Chapter provides an overview of the present state, challenges and trends in the RF, analog and mixed signal electronics for wireless infrastructure and provides a frame to orient the reader of this book to the following chapters covering the specifics of the technologies involved. © 2013
