MyDPD™ Evaluation Platform

A Complete Evaluation System for the NS-WBLEP 100-## Family of Products

 

With the MyDPDTM Complete Evaluation System, radio system designers can evaluate NanoSemi’s breakthrough wideband linearization with a custom power amplifier (PA) testbench. MyDPD uses:

  • NanoSemi’s family of wideband linearization products (Part Number: NS-WBLEP 100-##) NS-WBLEP 100-## is a crest-factor reduction (nsCFRTM) and digital pre-distortion (nsDPDTM) package allowing customers to linearize a wide range of PAs.
  • NanoSemi’s nsGUITM Evaluation Tool The nsGUI is a user-friendly graphical interface into NS-WBLEP 100-##, with controls for running linearization tests and choosing custom LTE waveforms.
  • Xilinx FPGA and Analog Devices transceiver products The Xilinx Zynq FPGA connects with the Analog Devices ADRV9371/ADRV9375 RF transceiver board, providing a ready-made interface between myDPD and the user’s PA testbench.

NS-WBLEP 100

NanoSemi Inc. Evaluation platform NS-WBLEP 100 – ##, for Analog Devices AD 9375/AD 9371

 

The NS-WBLEP is a wideband crest factor reduction (nsCFR) and digital pre-distortion (nsDPD) evaluation solution allowing customers to linearize a wide range of Power Amplifiers. NanoSemi’s robust and flexible implementation has been verified with Doherty and Class AB power amplifiers implemented in GaN, LDMOS, GaAs, and CMOS technologies. nsDPD has a rapid adaptation time that allows sharing of an observation path among multiple transmit channels while maintaining performance.

The NS-WBLEP 100 with AD9375/AD9371  and ZC706-2 is an evaluation platform for radio system designers to make first-order design trade-offs.

The NanoSemi Wide-Band Linearization Evaluation Platform will work with the Analog Devices AD 9371 and AD9375 Eval.Platform and PA demo-boards from various vendors.
The ADI platform consists of:
Analog Devices ADRV9371 or ADRV9375 Evaluation Platform
  • Part Number: ADRV9371-N/PCBZ (narrow tuning range 1.8 GHz to 2.6 GHz)
  • Part Number: ADRV9371-W/PCBZ (wide tuning range 300 MHz to 6 GHz)
  • Part Number: ADRV9375-PCBZ
