Efficient power amplification is inherently a non linear operation that introduces unwanted interference in the amplified signal. Strong inter-symbol interference is generated when the amplifier non linearity is combined with channel memory effects. Further, signals with very high peak to average power ratio, typical of multiple carrier systems, are even more sensitive to the non linearities resulting in severe distortion effects. Signal pre-clipping (crest factor reduction) and predistortion are conventional countermeasure techniques to reduce the generated non linear distortion and improve power and spectral efficiency. In this work, novel optimization methods for predistortion and pre-clipping are analytically derived for a general non-linear communication channel with memory. A combined architecture in which crest factor reduction is followed by signal predistortion is proposed and the parameters are estimated resorting to iterative algorithms based on least squares method. Performance evaluation of the estimation techniques shows the effectiveness of the derived algorithms and significant gain compared to previously known methods. © 2015 IEEE. [less ▲]
