To make the model hardware friendly, we first modify the model into a sub-decomposed format which significantly reduces the computational complexity in model extraction. We then reassemble the coefficients and propose a simple digital implementation structure for real-time signal processing in the transmit path. A new Dual-Direction COordinate Rotation DIgital Computer (DD-CORDIC) design is also proposed to simultaneously calculate both magnitude and 𝒆𝒋𝜽𝒏 values to facilitate the model implementation. To validate hardware implementation, a wide-band signal is employed to evaluate the performance with a Doherty power amplifier. Experimental results show that the proposed approach can achieve comparable performance with much lower system complexity compared to that using the conventional approaches.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||IEEE||Copyright (published version):||2017 IEEE||Keywords:||Behavioral model; CORDIC; Digital predistortion; Model extraction; Power amplifier; Radio frequency||DOI:||10.1109/TMTT.2016.2640318||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
