Method And Apparatus For Generating A Linearly Modulated Signal Using Polar Modulation


An apparatus and method generate a linearly modulated signal in a polar modulation system. A signal for transmission is separated into a phase component and an amplitude component, and a carrier signal is modulated with the phase component in a phase modulator, creating a phase distortion. A compensator compensates for the phase distortion created by the phase modulator by modifying the amplitude component. The phase modulated carrier signal is amplitude modulated by the compensated amplitude component to produce a linearly modulated signal.
