All Digital, Multi-Standard Highly Efficient Transmitter for Mobile Communication BaseStation Applications

A novel transmitter architecture which presents more power efficiency than that of the transmitters being used currently in mobile communication base stations, is proposed in this research project. The result of this research fills the gap between the theoretical idea behind this transmitter structure and its practical usage in cellular network base stations. This transmitter can operate over a wide frequency range and with different mobile communication signal standards very power efficiently while maintaining the quality of the transmitted signal. The outcome of this project leads to an industrial product which offers a new transmitter topology whose small formfactor minimize the cost and effort of the industrial partner transmitter design process. Moreover the high power efficiency of this transmitter interests the industrial partner's clients and helps saving significant amount of energy in base stations. Therefore the industrial partner benefits greatly from the results of this project.
