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).
In partnership with Rohde & Schwarz
Learn about temperature drift in electronic circuits, namely in resistors and amplifiers. We'll also cover how the effect of flicker noise comes into play and how drift limits the effectiveness of signal averaging.
