A 2.0–2.5 GHz frequency-selectable oscillator for digital predistortion model identification of RF power amplifiers

2017-04-21, McGrath, Kevin, Zhu, Anding

This paper presents the design of a frequency selectable oscillator used as part of a new data acquisition architecture for digital predistortion (DPD) of RF power amplifiers (PAs). The proposed architecture aims to alleviate the requirement of high sampling rate analog-to-digital-converters (ADCs) in the data acquisition loop. The oscillator utilizes switchable capacitors with a digital control scheme and is capable of operating between 2.0 GHz and 2.5 GHz with an approximate frequency step size of 512 kHz.
