dc.description.abstract This paper discusses the simulation and the design of an RF transmitter for small satellites operating in the commercial S- band (2.2 - 2.29 GHz) with a data rate of 8Mbps. In such systems, modelling frequency-dependent nonlinear characteristics of complex analog blocks and subsystems is critical for enabling efficient verification of mixed-signal system designs. In order to provide efficient and accurate simulation for the transmitter circuits, simple macromodels for weakly nonlinear mixer and power amplifier are used in the system simulation. Also, we introduce the noise in several circuits (frequency synthesizer, crystal oscillator, power amplifier, mixer,…) and we demonstrate their effect on the noise performance system. In the simulation we consider features of components and technologies commercially available. en_AU
