IQE - Digital I/Q Imbalance correction IP for Wireless Applications

The IQE 100 is a wideband imbalance correction IP, that digitally match in-phase and quadrature signal paths in radio architectures employing complex demodulators such as direct down-conversion receivers. The IQE 100 IP core is available as FPGA IP and as a GDSII macro block.

The IP is fully autonomous and offers a unique balancing performance for multi-band radio solutions. IQE 100 does not require any specific calibration signal nor does it interrupt normal operation of the receiver.
