Power amplifiers are one of the major sources of nonlinearities in a communication system. To compensate the PA non-linear behaviour, techniques such as data pre-distortion together with the implementation of a memoryless model such as Saleh’s, Ghorbani’s, Rapp’s or the Bessel-Fourier, are widely used in the literature. However, the accuracy of these models has been compared and tested by taking into account just the PA behaviour. Hence, the main contribution of this paper consists of comparing the performance of these models at system level by presenting computed and measured BER results.
