Overview:
LTE (long term evolution) will be starting initial rollouts this year. It is expected to quickly gain market share and eventually become the dominant mobile data protocol. Will you be ready?

ANADIGICS is ready to help you build your LTE devices. The company has a broad portfolio of devices to enable your development now, as well as a migration path to future developments.

This presentation discusses the LTE mobile physical layer, focusing on power amplifier (PA) requirements. The viewer will learn to identify potential roadblocks to LTE transmitter compliance and how PA performance affects robust design.

Attendees will learn:

  • LTE data rates.
  • The bands LTE will dominate.
  • Physical layer basics.
  • Reverse link air interface structure.
  • Reverse link modulation schemes.
  • Basic LTE handset transmitter architectures.
  • Standard-based tests which are the primary focus of the PA designer.
  • PA specifications for LTE handset power amplifiers.
  • What make s a good LTE power amplifier for the mobile market?
