Linearization for wireless access in 5G and beyond

Project budget 8 930 000 kronor, grants 4 000 000 kronor

Partners in project: Chalmers, Ericsson, Bluetest

Objectives:  Development of power amplifier linearization schemes, operating at extreme bandwidth in massive multi-antenna 5G, and beyond, systems

Specific sub-objectives to reach the main objective:

  • Reduce the complexity of wideband linearization by one order of magnitude compared to contemporary techniques.
  • Reduce the complexity of multi-antenna linearization by one order of magnitude compared to contemporary techniques.
  • Combine wideband and multi-antenna linearization, reducing complexity by up to two orders of magnitude.
  • Implement and demonstrate wideband multi-antenna linearization in a testbed, operating in a realistic environment.
