Overview:
In this webinar, we’ll start by exploring RF
transmitter architectures, then we’ll concentrate on the Direct to RF
Transmitter architecture enabled by RFDAC technology. Aspects of direct to RF
transmitter system design will be explored including gain, signal bandwidth,
digital signal processing requirements, frequency planning, thermal noise, clock
synthesis + phase noise, harmonics, sampling images, pre-distortion techniques
and deterministic latency. As RFDACs continue to be developed, they represent a
disruptive technology that delivers extremely wide bandwidth RF signals direct
from digital to RF. This technology will continue to change the way RF
transmitters are built going forward. ADI is an innovator and market leader in
this space.

Who should attend:
Students interested in RF transmitter
architectures used in point to point radio, military radar and electronic
warfare, wireless macro base stations, small cells, and cable modem termination
systems.
