Model-based adaptive feedforward amplifier linearizer.
Glenayre Electronics,
Christensen O Connor Johnson & Kindness PLLC,
September 28, 1999:
US05959500
(50 worldwide citation)

A linear RF transmitter uses an adaptive forward model of the power amplifier in a feedforward linearization system. The forward model outputs a modeled power amplifier output signal, which is then used to calculate the error signal. The error signal represents the distortion caused by the power amp ...

US09154168

A method of reducing a peak to average power ratio (PAR) of a signal may include generating an in-band error signal indicating in-band distortion of a compressed signal and generating an out-of-band error signal indicating out-of-band distortion of the compressed signal. The method may further inclu ...
