A parallel A/D conversion scheme with a filter bank for low-IF receivers is presented. The analysis filters of the filter bank divide the frequency components of the received signal, and achieve parallel A/D conversion. Therefore, the required conversion rates and the resolution of the A/D converters can be reduced and the receiver can demodulate wideband signals. As the analysis filters consist of analog components, their coefficients include errors. These errors cause mutual interference between signals in orthogonal frequencies. In order to remove this interference, a decorrelating compensation scheme is proposed.
