The ISL5239 Pre-Distortion Linearizer (PDL) is a full featured component for Power Amplifier (PA) linearization to improve PA power efficiency and reduce PA cost.
The Radio Frequency (RF) PA is one of the most expensive and power-consuming devices in any wireless communication system. The ideal RF PA would have an entirely linear relationship between input and output, expressed as a simple gain which applies at all power levels. Unfortunately, realizable RF amplifiers are not completely linear and the use of predistortion techniques allows the substitution of lower cost/power PA's for higher cost/power PA's.
The ISL5239 pre-distortion linearizer enables the linearization of less expensive PA's to provide more efficient operation closer to saturation. This provides the benefit of improved linearity and efficiency, while reducing PA cost and operational expense.
The ISL5239 features a 125MHz pre-distortion bandwidth capable of full 5th order intermodulation correction for signal bandwidths up to 20MHz. This bandwidth is particularly well suited for 3G cellular deployments of UMTS and CDMA2000. The device also corrects for PA memory effects that limit predistortion performance including self heating.
The ISL5239 combines an input formatter and interpolator, predistortion linearizer, an IF converter, correction filter, gain/phase/offset adjustment, output formatter, and input and feedback capture memories into a single chip controlled by a 16- bit linearizer interface.
The ISL5239 supports log of power, linear magnitude, and linear power based pre-distortion, utilizing two Look-Up Table (LUT) based algorithms for the pre-distortion correction. The device provides programmable scaling and offset correction, and provides for phase imbalance adjustment.

NOTE: The Evaluation Board Software and Matlab Tools software (isl5239eval1-software.exe) will extract to the 'C:\ISL5239' directory by default and install all required files. Run the installer twice if a previous version of the software is already installed - once to uninstall the previous version and once again to install the new version.
