Curtailed Digital Predistortion Model for Crosstalk in MIMO Transmitters

This paper investigates the issue of high complexity of digital predistortion for the nonlinear distortion introduced due to crosstalk in addition to the nonlinear distortion generated by a power amplifier (PA) in 2×2 MIMO transmitters. This paper proposes a less complex, novel model for digital predistortion (DPD) for linearizing multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) transmitters. This model is constructed by taking account of both linear and nonlinear crosstalks, along with the fact that the nonlinearity generated due to crosstalk would be lesser than the nonlinearity already available due to PA. For proof-of-concept, it is shown for two different scenarios that proposed model provides similar linearization performance as compared to 2×2 PH model with less number of coefficients.
