Digital predistortion at baseband is an efficient and low-cost method for the linearization of a power amplifier (PA) in a wireless system employing a nonconstant-envelop modulation scheme, so as to reduce the adjacent channel interference. The polynomial and the look-up table (LUT) predistortion schemes are two commonly used approaches. However, in each of the two approaches, to reach a satisfactory adjacent channel power ratio (ACPR) in the PA output signal, people usually end up with a complex system having the involved algorithms converge rather slowly. In this brief, we propose a low-complexity joint-polynomial-and-LUT predistortion PA linearizer, where the two mutually dependent predistortion schemes can skillfully help each other. Simulation results show that the proposed joint linearizer can reduce the algorithm convergence time while achieving an excellent ACPR
