  • Patent number: 11165515
    Abstract: A circuit includes an amplifier and pre-distortion circuit. The amplifier amplifies a modulated signal. The signal pre-distortion circuit performs a feed-forward pre-distortion of the modulated signal in a signal path in which the amplifier resides. The signal pre-distortion circuit includes: i) an envelope detector configured operative to provide an envelope information describing an envelope of the modulated signal; and ii) a built-in test circuit that determines distortion information describing a distortion in the signal path caused by amplitude variations. The signal pre-distortion circuit performs the feed-forward pre-distortion of the modulated signal on the basis of the distortion information.

  • Patent number: 10958298
    Abstract: Techniques (implemented in circuit arrangements, methods, computer instructions) are disclosed which permit digital pre-distortion for amplifiers. A common signal source provides a common analog signal from a digital input signal; a plurality of amplifiers amplifies a split signal which is a split version of the common analog signal; a built-in test circuit is configured to provide distortion information associated to distortion affecting the amplifier. The common signal source implements a signal conditioner to perform, in a signal path of the digital input signal, a feed-forward pre-distortion of the digital input signal according to a pre-distortion relationship mapping the digital input signal onto a pre-distorted version. The signal conditioner is configured to adjust the pre-distortion relationship in dependence on the distortion information.

  • Patent number: 10556913
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a new process for the preparation of thieno-indole derivatives of formula (Ia) or (Ib), exploiting an asymmetric synthesis for the preparation of key (8S) or (8R) 8-(halomethyl)-1-alkyl-7,8-dihydro-6H-thieno[3,2-e]indol-4-ol intermediates, and to useful intermediate compounds of such process. Thieno-indole derivatives are described and claimed in GB2344818, WO2013/149948 and WO2013/149946, which also disclose processes for their preparation. Thieno-indole enantiopure derivatives can now be advantageously prepared through a new asymmetric synthesis of the key 8-(halomethyl)-7,8-dihydro-6H-thieno[3,2-e]indol intermediates, which, avoiding the chiral resolution step, provides benefits in terms of reducing time and costs of the whole process for their preparation.

  • Patent number: 10498392
    Abstract: Devices and methods determining phase offsets are disclosed. A first test signal is transmitted from a first RF circuit part to a second RF circuit part, where a phase difference between the first test signal and a reference signal (ref) is measured. A second test signal is transmitted from the second RF circuit part to the first RF circuit part, where a second phase difference between the second test signal and the reference signal (ref) is measured. Phase offsets of a connection between the first and second circuit parts or of a line supplying the reference signal are determined based on the first and second phase differences.
