In this paper, a digital compensation scheme for coefficient errors of a complex filter bank parallel A/D converter in low-IF receivers is presented. The complex filter bank is employed to suppress DC offset and image signals in the low-IF receivers and relax the requirements on the conversion rate and resolution of A/D converters. The proposed compensation scheme regenerates interference due to coefficient errors and subtracts it from the digital signal converted by an A/D converter. The proposed scheme also improves the effective resolution of A/D converters.
