This paper discusses the design of a filter bank based transceiver capable of simultaneously up- or downconverting the entire TV white space (TVWS) frequency band. The spectral mask requirements favour a filter bank based approach, whereby RF sampling and the use of an FPGA for digital up- and down-conversion dictates a two-stage approach. Some of the design considerations, including filter design approaches, are discussed in this contribution.
