Burst-mode operation of power amplifiers (PAs) is a promising concept towards higher power efficiency in radio frequency (RF) transmitters. Such transmitters use pulse-width modulation (PWM) to create the driving signal for the PA, and a reconstruction filter after amplification to obtain the transmission signal. However, conventional digital pulse-width modulated signals contain a large amount of distortion that cannot be removed by the reconstruction filter in a satisfactory manner.
