IMS 2012 MicroApps - Linking RF Design Thru to Test

  • Author: Josh Moore and David Hall

Today's wireless networks usher in digital modulation techniques that necessitate the need to stimulate amplifiers and other circuits with waveforms they actually process in service. This necessitates far tighter integration between the baseband signal processing and high-frequency circuit design tools as well as actual test equipment for both generating these modulated waveforms and evaluating their effects on the performance of the design.
