Summary: 
The architecture and control procedure for a direct conversion receiver are investigated for a linear modulation scheme. The proposed design techniques maintain receiver linearity despite various types of signal distortion. The techniques include the fast gain control procedure for receiving a control channel for air interface connection, DC offset canceling in both analog and digital stages, and 2nd-order intermodulation distortion canceling in an analog down-conversion stage. Experimental and computer simulation results on PHS (Personal Handy-phone System) parameters, showed that required linear modulation performance was achieved and thus the applicability of the proposed techniques was demonstrated.
