1. A method for processing a radio frequency (RF) signal, the method comprising:
down-converting an RF signal into a converted signal using a down-converter;
obtaining a received signal strength indicator (RSSI) value based on an amplitude of the RF signal using an RSSI device;
amplifying the converted signal based on the RSSI value using an amplifier; and
freezing a gain of the amplifier if data reception is detected.
