Abstract

A 10.7 Gb/s electronic predistortion transmitter using FPGA-based real time 2 Samples/bit digital signal processing based on 55-tap finite impulse response filters is described. Transmission over 1200 km of standard single-mode fiber without optical dispersion compensation is demonstrated with an OSNR penalty of only 2.5 dB, compared with back-to- back operation.
