Power amplifiers in wireless communication systems require both highly linear and high efficiency pre-distortion techniques to achieve their objectives.? The techniques are generally baseband digital solutions, but recently a novel analog predistortion technology, which operates on signals in the RF domain, has been gaining traction.? This talk will cover this technology as well as the family of RF Power Amplifier Linearizers (RFPAL) System-on-Chip (SoC) solutions from Scintera.? Due to the low power consumption of these ICs, this method of linearization is becoming especially popular for mid-to-low power cellular base stations as well as several other adjacent markets.? We will also discuss the applicability of the underlying analog signal processing technology to other markets.
