Power Efficiencies of Linear Transmitter Architectures for Handportable, Satellite Communications

Waters, John; Mansell, A.; McGeehan, J.P.; Bateman, A.



Abstract: The provision of a linear transmit section within a mobile transceiver facilitates the use of arbitrarily amplitude-and-phase modulated signaling, potentially resulting in flexible and spectrally efficeint communication. This paper highlights some relevant narrowband, linear transmitter architectures appropriate to satellite handportable and mobile transceivers, and attempts to qualify their relative merits in terms of power efficency and complexity.
