This paper proposes a new technique to efficiently and extremely increase the performance of Pedersen’s digital chirp generator concerning the level of the Spurious-Free Dynamic Range (SFDR). The digital chirp generator uses the optimized piecewise-polynomial approximation to decrease the memory size and system complexity and excellent spectral performance in comparison with the other techniques.
