3 Technical Description

3 Technical Description
The active TX chain gain calibration can increase the accuracy of the downlink transmit power (for
example, the power accuracy of the 3900 series NodeB is 0.6 dB), thus reducing the protection band
reserved for power calculation in network planning and improving the utilization of transmit power.
Performance drift occurs on all RF hardware. The gain of an RF part (for example, TRX, PA, RF
connector, or duplexer) is related to the temperature, frequency, and lot number. Such a gain difference
leads to a 1.5 dB to 2 dB error in the NodeB transmit power.
The active TX chain gain calibration can reduce the changes in analog channel gains caused by different
temperatures, frequencies, and lot numbers, thus ensuring a stable total gain of links. The active TX
chain gain calibration method calculates the difference between the downlink input power and transmit
power and then adjusts digital channel gains based on the transmit power on the analog channel. Gain
control is performed in real time, thus ensuring the accuracy of transmit power.
