Linearity and Efficiency in 5G Transmitters: New Techniques for Analyzing Efficiency, Linearity, and Linearization in a 5G Active Antenna Transmitter Context
Journal article, 2019

© 2000-2012 IEEE. Every new generation of mobile systems should provide higher capacity, serve more users, be more energy efficient, and have lower cost. Radio-access hardware constitutes a major bottleneck for reaching these goals, which is a particularly noticeable issue now that 5G communication systems are being developed. A combination of breakthroughs in communication theory-as in massive multiple input/multiple output (MIMO) [1], highly integrated semiconductor and packaging technologies, and extended spectrum allocations- has enabled a paradigm shift in the way radio hardware will be realized. Today's high-power, fewantenna, sectorized systems will soon be replaced with highly integrated active antenna systems having up to hundreds of individually driven low-power radios operating with very wideband signals.
