ABSTRACT
<p><it>Editor's note:</it></p><p>Tuning knobs are becoming common in analog and RF devices for postsilicon calibration for variation tolerance and compensation. This article presents a low-cost, hardware-iterative technique based on a steepest-descent-based gradient search algorithm and demonstrates its utility in performance tuning of a 2.4-GHz transmitter system.</p><p align="right"><it>&#x2014;Rahul Rao, IBM</it></p>
