Application Notes

Investigate RF Power Amplifier Linearization Benefits in EDA

September 21, 2022 by Rohde & Schwarz

This application note is a collaborative work between Cadence and Rohde & Schwarz and focuses on performance enhancements through linearization of non-linear devices as early as possible in the design process. Using an RF power amplifier (PA) as the reference, we discuss benefits which can be achieved with linearization techniques such as digital predistortion (DPD).
