To achieve a higher level of integration, the project proposes a novel approach to the design strategy. Rather than making specifications based on a purely architectural approach, the project will use a concurrent approach, where circuit designers and architecture designers cooperate on the design and specifications. This will allow more circuit issues to be included in the overall architecture, leading to an architecture with circuit blocks suited for full integration. The higher level of integration will be achieved by combining analog and digital signal processing in the front-end.
