Abstract

In any communication environment, the linearity of the receiver is paramount to the minimization of distortion and/or the reduction of the probability of bit error. Narrowband and "medium-band" receiv- ers have information bandwidths which readily lend themselves to sophisticated digital signal processing techniques which practically eliminate this problem. Analog cellular is typical of a narrowband applica- tion, while digital cellular (TDMAKDMA) is typi- cal of a "medium-band" application. Broadband receivers however, usually rely on conventional ana- log techniques.
