Future wireless communication systems require increased flexibility, lower power consumption, smaller size and decreasing costs for the terminals and therewith for the components. By replacing analogue by digital signal processing the degree of integration and the flexibility of a terminal with respect to multi-mode capability can be improved. In a highly integrated implementation the most critical components are the A/D-converter and the digital filter stages due to high speed and low power requirements. In this contribution a novel concept for a flexible, digital receiver with highly optimized components will be presented. The concept is based on down-conversion of the broadband receive signal to a low intermediate frequency. The main modules of the receiver are a properly designed ΔΣ-modulator for A/D-conversion, and novel digital filtering stages. It will be demonstrated, that the use of cascaded low-order wave digital lattice filters results in a number of advantages and makes a very efficient realization in VLSI-technology feasible.
