Asymmetric digital subscriber line (ADSL) technology meets the need for high-bandwidth communications to the home utilizing the existing twisted-pair copper. In an ADSL modem, noise and linearity of the analog front end (AFE) are critical to the data rate achievable over the longest lines (up to and above 18 kfeet of AWG24 wire) and hence the fraction of installed lines over which ADSL service can be deployed. In multitone ADSL, dynamic linearity throughout the band determines modem capacity… CONTINUE READING
