Image frequency in RF/wireless circuits

The image frequency in Rf/wireless receivers is an issue that has to be understood by radio designers and tackled for robust design. The image frequency is a so-called spurious signal which can cause a number of bad effects.Its origin lies in the mixing of multiple frequency signals in the receiver mixer. A paper released recently by Signal Processing Group Inc., describes this effect in simple terms so that an understanding of the effect may be obtained by interested designers.
