The performance of an enhanced RF power amplifier linearization method is investigated experimentally. The linearization method is an extension of the complex gain predistortion technique, and is implemented on a digital signal processor (DSP). Three complex baseband signals are sampled simultaneously; namely, the quadrature modulated input and feedback signals, and also the predistorted signal. Using these sampled data, a look-up-table (LUT) with new complex predistortion values is calculated in a time efficient manner. Input data bit rates of 30.3 kb/s and LUT updating rates of 33 tables/s were achieved using a TMS320C30 DSP. This linearization method reduced the out-of-band spectral distortion by up to 28 dB in the first adjacent channel.
