Behavioral Modeling and Digital Predistortion of 2x2 MIMO Wireless Transmitters with Enhanced Multivariable Polynomials

I. Zemzemi, N. Boulejfen

Abstract


In this paper we propose a novel concept named Enhanced Multivariable Memory Polynomials (EMVP) for the behavioral modeling and linearization of Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) transmitters in the presence of linear (LC) and nonlinear (NLC) coupling effects. The proposed model improves the linearization performance of the conventional Multivariable Memory Polynomials (MVP) model. Its performance is experimentally compared with the ones of three popular polynomial models. EMVP model has succeeded in offering better linearization of MIMO transmitters, with fewer coefficients, compared to the conventional models. Experimental results showed improvement in Adjacent Channel Power Ratio (ACPR
