RF Predistortion ICs: Introduction
Radio frequency power amplifier linearization ICs, or RF predistortion ICs, repartition sections of the predistortion algorithm to analog/RF from the digital domain. Thus, RF predistortion ICs are also referred to as analog predistortion ICs. RF predistortion ICs showcase a processing architecture for digital signals to be converted to analog radio frequencies. The RF predistortion architecture efficiently facilitates simple, compact and low power digital programmability.
RF predistortion ICs find common applications in microwave point-to-point and cellular infrastructure markets. Manufacturers offer compact RF predistortion ICs that facilitate cost-effective infrastructures, which offer compact Long Term Evolution (LTE) cellular cell designs. These 4G cellular small cell solutions are integrated as heterogeneous network deployments.
