Abstract
This paper provides a design guide for optimum. design of an RF power amplifier with a predistortion linearizer. For a two-tone signal, three performance degradation factors, higher order terms, amplitude, and phase mismatches are analyzed quantitatively. The results are implemented to the design of optimized predistortion power amplifier for a WCDMA signal application. For the experiments, a 2.4-GHz class-AB power amplifier is fabricated using an LDMOSFET with a 30-W peak envelope power. A simple third-order predistorter is used to measure the relative phases of the harmonics, as well as to linearize the amplifier. The performance of the optimized predistortion power amplifier is excellent for a IS-95 code-division-multiple-access signal. Finally, a method for reducing the memory effects of the amplifier is devised to get a good cancellation performance for a wide-band signal, and the performance degradation caused by the memory effects is analyzed. For a forward-link four-carrier WCDMA signal, the predistortion power amplifier delivers an adjacent channel leakage ratio of -46 dBc at a 4-W average output power with a cancellation of 13.4 dB.
