Abstract

Electronic predistortion is a powerful technique to combat transmission impairments on fiber-optic communication links. The principle behind electronic predistortion will be revised and different methods to implement this method will be explained. In addition to that, we will focus on the implementation complexity of this scheme and we will highlight how the complexity scales for increasing channel data rates.
