RF power amplifiers are critical in ensuring transmission range of wireless systems, but their non-ideal behavior can degrade the performance of the overall system. To mitigate this performance degradation, you can apply linearization algorithms such as digital predistortion (DPD) at part of the transmitter or receiver chain.

MATLAB® and Simulink® provide a unified approach to modeling and simulating RF power amplifiers (PAs) and DPD algorithms, letting you rapidly develop ideas, validate designs, and build robust RF systems.

Read this white paper to learn how to:

  • Model nonlinear RF power amplifiers
  • Design a DPD algorithm for increasing transmitter linearity
  • Perform system simulation for early verification of DPD algorithm performance
  • Prototype and verify the DPD algorithm using FPGA hardware
