Modeling and Simulation of RF and Microwave Systems

By: John Wood

Abstract: This application note describes system-level characterization and modeling techniques for radio frequency (RF) and microwave subsystem components. It illustrates their use in a mixed-signal, mixed-mode system-level simulation. The simulation uses an RF transmitter with digital predistortion (DPD) as an example system. Details of this complex system and performance data are presented.
