Modern HF Receivers must fulfill a variety of requirements e.g. sensitivity, robustness and many others. Key requirements are often directly leading to RF concepts and architectures with their specific advantages and disadvantages. But how would the perfect universal receiver look like today which combines all available technologies into a most modern concept for a software defined receiver approach? As an example we use an HF receiver covering 30KHz to 30MHz, the range can easily be extended to the microwave range.
Is it “IF-Sampling” or “Direct Sampling” or even something else?
