6. 33 for graphic evaluations and analyses in addition to demodulation, the signal path is divided after the A/D converter into two parallel branches (Figs. 37).
6 μHz . ) It was quickly realized that large-signal problems can be eliminated only if the first narrowband selection takes place in an early stage of the receive path. In multiple-conversion systems quartz filters with a frequency in the range of about 5 MHz to 130 MHz were therefore included already in the first IF. 1). In high-linearity RF frontends there is no amplification at all upstream of the first mixer. The narrower the bandwidth in the first IF the higher is its relieving effect for the second mixer.
A receiver working on this principle is called a direct mixer, directconversion receiver or zero-IF receiver. It avoids the use of an intermediate frequency and thus allows relocating the circuits for amplification, selection and AGC to the AF section (Fig. 12). This is easily done by using operational amplifiers, such as active filters, amplifiers and control units. Receivers based on the direct mixer principle remained in the shadows for a long time. 17) with the desired signal leads to hum noise, especially in units operated from a power line.
