functions on a common substrate. It is currently difficult to keep digital noise from coupling into analog circuitry and degrading performance. Research on how to implement wide-dynamic-range analog circuitry monolithically with digital circuitry would provide the basis for implementing an entire software radio on a single component. Such an effort needs to encompass the monolithic implementation of high-performance filters that are tunable over large frequency ranges.
