Compact multi-band RF transmitter solution will play a unique role in the forthcoming 4G-beyond and 5G wireless networks. The emerging RF class data convertor, i.e., RFDAC enables a promising single-chain multi-band RF transmitter solution. In order to combat the imperfections of practical nonlinear power amplifiers in the single-chain multi-band RF solution, we need multi-band RF signal conditioning unit. In this paper, we present a very compact multi-band digital predistortion (DPD) solution using only one under-sampling ADC and a passive band-pass filter to replace the conventional DPD feedback path. The exper-imental results verified the proposed compact multi-band DPD architecture. Preliminarily the proposed DPD scheme with a sin-gle ADC at 76.8MSPS sampling rate in the feedback path was able to provide satisfactory multi-band linearization in the single-chain multi-band RF transmitter with 1GHz bandwidth.

Based on the physical model of a bulk reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA) used as a modulator in radio over fiber (RoF) links, the distributions of carrier density, signal photon density, and amplified spontaneous emission photon density are demonstrated. One of limits in the use of RSOA is the lower ...

How to preserve users' privacy while supporting high-utility analytics for low-latency stream processing? To answer this question: we describe the design, implementation and evaluation of PRIVAPPROX, a data analytics system for privacy-preserving stream processing. PRIVAPPROX provides three properties: (i) Privacy: zero-knowledge privacy (ezk) guarantees for users, a privacy bound tighter ...
