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
In this article, we will take a look at the XDK110 rapid prototyping kit, characterize its hardware, explore its software environment, and demonstrate connecting the device to the MQTT messaging service.
