Solving the Elusive Baseband to Antenna Problem using RFDAC Technology

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.
