Behavioral Modeling and Linearization of RF Power Amplifiers

Front Cover
Artech House, Jun 1, 2014 - Technology & Engineering - 378 pages

Wireless voice and data communications have made great improvements, with connectivity now virtually ubiquitous. Users are demanding essentially perfect transmission and reception of voice and data. The infrastructure that supports this wide connectivity and nearly error-free delivery of information is complex, costly, and continually being improved.

This resource describes the mathematical methods and practical implementations of linearization techniques for RF power amplifiers for mobile communications. This includes a review of RF power amplifier design for high efficiency operation. Readers are also provided with mathematical approaches to modeling nonlinear dynamical systems, which can be applied in the context of modeling the PA for identification in a pre-distortion system. This book also describes typical approaches to linearization and digital pre-distortion that are used in practice.
