Digital Feed-forward Linearization

The intention of this paper is to describe a concept of non-adaptive Digital Feed-forward Linearization, an approach intended to correct unwanted nonlinear effects in power amplifiers. The reason for calling the described approach “digital” is that its...
This paper describes a concept of non-adaptive Digital Feed-forward Linearization. A feed-forward amplifier is a system designed to reduce the spectrum re-grows appearing due to the amplifier’s nonlinearity. There are several general techniques to reduce nonlinearity effects. They are divided into two major groups. One of them (called “predistortion”)...
