This paper proposes a behavioral modeling approach for the description of nonlinearities in wideband wireless communication circuits with memory. The model is formally derived exploiting the dependence on frequency of the amplifier nonlinear transfer functions and reduce the number of parameters in a general Volterra-based behavioral model. To validate the proposed approach, a commercial amplifier at 915 MHz, exhibiting nonlinear memory effects, has been widely characterized using different… CONTINUE READING
