Empower RF Systems is proud to announce the approval of a patent on "Broadband linearization module and method"

Approval of a patent on Broadband linearization module and method

This patent relates to a real time pre-distortion design and technique that is essential for broadband frequency hopping, which is especially critical for military radio communication. The main advantage of the new linearization approach is that pre-correction is being synchronized with the amplifier's distortion components in frequency, time and temperature.
