The data rates as well as quality of service (QoS) requirements for rich user experience in wireless communication services are continuously growing. While consuming a major portion of the energy needed by wireless devices, the wireless transceivers have a key role in guaranteeing the needed data rates with high bandwidth efficiency. The cost of wireless devices also heavily depends on the transmitter and receiver technologies. In this chapter, we concentrate on the problem of transmitting information sequences efficiently through a wireless channel and performing reception such that it can be implemented with state of the art signal processing tools. The operations of the wireless devices can be divided to RF and baseband (BB) processing. Our emphasis is to cover the BB part, including the coding, modulation, and waveform generation functions, which are mostly using the tools and techniques from digital signal processing. But we also look at the overall transceiver from the RF system point of view, covering issues like frequency translations and channelization filtering, as well as emerging techniques for mitigating the inevitable imperfections of the analog RF circuitry through advanced digital signal processing methods.
