IEEE Microwave Magazine – May 2019
The May issue of the IEEE Microwave Magazine is out! And this issue focuses on digital predistortion and postcorrection. In the last decade our analog microwave world has become joined at the hip with digital correction. While digital circuitry has complemented microwave circuitry for decades, digital chips are now so advanced that they are trivial to integrate with microwave amplifiers and perform impressive compensation. But, the Guest Editors SungWon Chung and Hermann Boss will tell you more in their column about the issue. Five articles in this issue cover everything from 5G transmitters to multiband envelope tracking, digital equalization of ADC based receivers, using DSP for mitigating spurs in PLLs and digital equalization techniques in optical interconnects. There is a lot to enjoy in this issue.
