One of the main reasons behind the tremendous growth of the wireless communication technology in the past few decades is the development of wireless standards for the different field of wireless applications. These standards, which can be set by industries or worldwide organizations, help in the fast adoption of the technology into the consumer markets because standardization brings about cheaper, faster, better interoperable and more compatible consumer products. However, as technology progress, the number of wireless standards also increases and complicates the situation. Newer standards that are supposed to be better and superseding older standards often fail to fully replace them. The wide penetration of the older standards demands backward compatibility from the newer standards. On top of this, the convergence of standards that are originally from different field of applications into a single mobile device for the consumer markets further increases the complexity of situation. All these demands points to the development of a multi-standard radio.
