A wideband spectrum sensing system for cognitive radio is designed and implemented in a 130-nm radio frequency mixed-mode CMOS technology. The system employs an I-Q downconverter, a pair of complex filters, and a pair of envelope detectors to perform the spectrum sensing from 250 MHz to 3.25 GHz. The design makes use of the band-pass nature of the complex filter to achieve two objectives: 1) separation of upper sideband and lower sideband around the local oscillator signal and 2) resolution of smaller bands within a large detection bandwidth. The measured sensitivity is close to -45 dBm for a single tone test over a bandwidth of 40 MHz. The measured image reject ratio is close to 30 dB. The overall wideband detection bandwidth is 250 MHz, which is partitioned into 40-MHz narrowband chunks with eight such overlapping chunks.
