For RF fingerprinting of wireless devices, data acquisition has a critical role. Because of this, highly sophisticated devices arc used for data capturing or acquisition. In this paper, design of a RF receiver front end with modular components is presented. This design contains filtering and down conversion processing of Bluetooth signals for cellular phones. Moreover, AWR VSS and MATLAB have been used for simulating the down converter circuit. With this simulation, effects of components that used in the design on recorded signal have been observed. In this work in progress paper, only high SNR conditions are considered.
