- Available for pre-order. Item will ship after July 19, 2021
This book is a summary of a series of achievements made by the authors and colleagues in the areas of radio frequency power amplifier modelling (including neural Volterra series modelling, neural network modelling, X-parameter modelling), nonlinear analysis methods, and power amplifier predistortion technology over the past 10 years.
The book is organized into ten chapters, which respectively describe an overview of research of power amplifier behavioral models and predistortion technology, nonlinear characteristics of power amplifiers, power amplifier behavioral models and the basis of nonlinear analysis, an overview of power amplifier predistortion, Volterra series modelling of power amplifiers, power amplifier modelling based on neural networks, power amplifier modelling with X-parameters, the modelling of other power amplifiers, nonlinear circuit analysis methods, and predistortion algorithms and applications.
Blending theory with analysis, this book will provide researchers and RF/microwave engineering students with a valuable resource.
