An improved cross talk cancelling digital predistortion (ICTC-DPD) with novel estimating technique and decoupling technique is proposed, which can be used to compensate the cross talk with possible delay and compensate the nonlinearity with memory effect in MIMO transmitting channels. The cross talk cancellation ability, which is defined as the cross talk power ratio before cancellation to after cancellation in decibel, is analyzed and its closed-form expression is derived. Simulation results prove that the ICTC-DPD can achieve higher cross talk estimation accuracy and higher cross talk cancellation ability than the original CTC-DPD. Experimental results show that the ICTC-DPD can achieve 20 dB cross talk cancellation for two channels transmitting 20 MHz LTE signals.
