The use of adaptive antenna in mobile communications base stations is self-explanatory. It offers the potential of increased spectrum efficiency, extended range of coverage and reduced delay spread. However, one major concern for adaptive antenna system is the non-linearity effects of the RF/IF chain upon digital baseband beamforming network. This contribution investigates these effects on the performance of adaptive antennas and suggests the use of linearised transceiver system to tackle the nonlinearity problem.
