Convolutional Neural Network for Behavioral Modeling and Predistortion of Wideband Power Amplifiers

In this paper, we propose a novel behavior model for wideband PAs using a real-valued time-delay convolutional neural network (RVTDCNN). The input data of the model are sorted and arranged as the graph composed of the in-phase and quadrature (I/Q) components and envelope-dependent terms of current and past signals... We design a pre-designed filter using the convolutional layer to extract the basis functions required for the PA forward or reverse modeling. The generated rich basis functions are modeled using a simple fully connected layer. Because of the weight sharing characteristics of the convolutional structure, the strong memory effect does not lead to a obvious increase in the complexity of the model. Meanwhile, the extraction effect of the pre-designed filter also reduces the training complexity of the model. The experimental results show that the performance of the RVTDCNN model is almost the same as the NN models and the multilayer NN models. read more
