Abstract

Systems currently being developed to operate across wide bandwidths with high sensitivity requirements are limited by the inherent dynamic range of a receiver's analog and mixed-signal components. To increase a receiver's overall linearity, we have developed a digital NonLinear EQualization (NLEQ) processor which is capable of extending a receiver's dynamic range from one to three orders of magnitude. In this paper we describe the NLEQ architecture and present measurements of its performance.
