This article presents a wideband, energy-efficient digital transmitter (DTX) suitable for multi-mode/multi-band wireless communication applications. It features various operation modes comprising Cartesian (Modes-1/-2) and multi-phase (Modes-3/-4) configurations utilizing LO clocks with different duty cycle in the interleaving/non...

Fully digital transmitters (DTXs) have the potential of replacing analog-intensive transmitter (TX) line-ups in future massive multiple-input and multiple-output (mMIMO) systems since they hold the promise of higher system integration level and energy efficiency. DTX operation so far has been limited to low RF output powers. This article...

A 40nm CMOS wideband digital Cartesian push-pull inverted Doherty operating in class-E is presented. Wideband Doherty operation is achieved over a 1.9-to-3GHz frequency band, using an off-chip power combining network. The fully digital transmitter (DTX) provides 25.3dBm peak power with a drain/DTX line-up efficiency (DE/SE) of 58.7%/44.9%,...

This report describes the design of different amplifiers that are part of an FM transceiver. This is part of a larger project, which has the objective to design a complete FM transceiver from discrete components only, meaning that IC technology is not considered. <br/>The circuits designed are two baseband amplifiers, an intermediate frequency...

Packaged integrated low-pass quasi-load insensitive (QLI) class-E matching is proposed for the realization of energy-efficient wideband Doherty and outphasing transmitters. In view of this, a dedicated QLI class-E harmonic matching technique, suitable for in-package integration has been developed, optimized, and evaluated. As proof of concept...

We propose a new transmitter architecture for ultra-low power radios in which the most energy-hungry RF circuits operate at a supply just above a threshold voltage of CMOS transistors. An all-digital PLL employs a digitally controlled oscillator with switching current sources to reduce supply voltage and power without sacrificing its startup...

This paper presents a wideband 2 13-bit in-phase/quadrature-phase (I/Q) RF digital-to-analog converter-based all-digital modulator realized in 65-nm CMOS. The isolation between I and Q paths is guaranteed employing 25% duty-cycle differential quadrature clocks. With a 1.3-V supply and an on-chip power combiner, the digital I/Q transmitter...

Shi, K. (author)
With the rapid growth of wireless communication systems, there is more and more demand for radio frequency power amplifiers (RFPAs) in base stations to be power-efficient so as to reduce the cooling and electrical power cost. Besides the efficient requirement, wide-band working frequency and compact PCB size are also attractive for cutting more...

Zhang, R. (author)
This research work aims to gain understanding of the power amplifier (PA) operating as a linear PA under low power drive conditions and as a switch-mode PA in high power drive conditions both with the same Class-E load. Two approaches were taken here. Firstly, an analytical approach was developed to investigate the switching operation of...

This thesis describes the design, simulation and implementation of a supply modulator to be used in a VHF power amplifier on the Delfi-n3Xt nano-satellite. First, a set of specifications is defined that describe the required functionality. These are derived from earlier work on related systems and confirmed through discussions within the project...
