Digital tRAnSmitTer ICs (DRASTIC)

Themes: Big-data on-chip transmission, Microwave circuits, RF electronics

This project aims to develop DTX ICs for highly-integrated and energy-efficient mMIMO base stations.

Digital Transmitters (DTX) that provide direct conversion of the digital baseband data to RF power are envisioned as promising candidates to implement the wireless systems of the future. DTX based concepts can, by digitally controlling RF output stage(s), in theory ensure perfect waveform shaping and optimum RF-output operation. As such eliminating the need for the traditional analog linear TX chain. Within this project, we aim to develop the DTX building blocks for highly integrated and energy-efficient mMIMO base stations.
