This paper presents a technique to estimate the coefficients of a multiple-look-up table (LUT) digital predistortion (DPD) architecture based on the partial least-squares (PLS) regression method. The proposed 3-D distributed memory LUT architecture is suitable for efficient FPGA implementation and compensates for the distortion arising in concurrent dual-band envelope tracking power amplifiers. On the one hand, a new variant of the orthogonal matching pursuit algorithm is proposed to properly select only the best LUTs of the DPD function in the forward path, and thus reduce the number of required coefficients. On the other hand, the PLS regression method is proposed to address both the regularization problem of the coefficient estimation and, at the same time, reducing the number of coefficients to be estimated in the DPD feedback identification path. Moreover, by exploiting the orthogonality of the PLS transformed matrix, the computational complexity of the parameters' identification can be significantly simplified. Experimental results will prove how it is possible to reduce the DPD complexity (i.e., the number of coefficients) in both the forward and feedback paths while meeting the targeted linearity levels.
