• The adaptive component layer: The fourth layer describes all the practical fixes that are required in order to create a workable radio. One by one the various problems are studied and solutions are proposed, implemented, and tested. These include fixes for additive noise, for timing offset problems, for clock frequency mismatches and jitter, and for multipath reflections. Again, the order in which topics are discussed is the order in which they appear in the receiver.
