Rapid advancements in nanotechnology are going to bring radical changes in the society and particularly in wireless communication where small, smart and speedy systems are everyone's first choice. This is possible as application of nanotechnology is taking place in WiMAX/WiFi and other wireless communication systems, which is ‘State-of-the-Art’ technology at the moment. Evolution of microelectronics towards miniaturization is one of the main motivations for nanotechnology. The continued improvements in miniaturization, speed and power reduction in information processing devices, sensors, displays, logic devices, storage devices, transmission devices, etc. will bring another technical revolution, which will change our life. In our research work, we would like to focus on design and development of programmable frequency synthesizer for WiMAX/WiFi wireless communication (to the scale of < 50 nanometer). The transceiver will support fixed, portable, and mobile WiMAX operation. The design strategies focus on maximum operating frequency, low power consumption, low voltage operation, minimize number of gates/transistors, CMOS Technology (< 50 nanometer), reduced fabrication cost, high speed applications in WiMAX/WiFi/Satellite communications, flexibility, programmability, and service efficiency. The proposed ‘Programmable frequency synthesizer will be a new device with its varied application for WiMAX/WiFi/Satellite and other wireless communication systems. The transceiver will support fixed, portable, and mobile WiMAX operation.
