Abstract

A customized I Q modulator driven by equal-amplitude binary signals for generating offset-free 16-quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) is proposed and validated through simulations. The incorporation of tunable splitters demonstrates the feasibility of the transmitter and enables more efficient constellations such as hexagonal 16-QAM.
