Executive Summary

With the advent of spectrally efficient wireless communication systems employing modulation schemes with varying amplitude of the communication signal, linearization techniques for nonlinear microwave Power Amplifiers (PAs) have gained significant interest. In this paper, a low complexity, direct-learning multilevel look-up table based adaptive digital predistortion technique has been proposed to linearize a PA. A loop delay compensation scheme has been used to achieve a significant reduction in convergence time and an improvement in linearization accuracy in the presence of an unknown loop delay.
