In this paper, a novel amplifier linearisation technique based on the negative impedance compensation is presented. As demonstrated by using Volterra model, the proposed technique is suitable for linearising amplifiers with low open-loop gain, which is appropriate for RF/microwave applications. A single-chip CMOS amplifier has been designed using the proposed method, and the simulation results show that high gain accuracy (improved by 38%) and high linearity (IMD3 improved by 14 dB, OIP3 improved by 11 dB and adjacent channel power ratio (ACPR) improved by 44% for CDMA signal) can be achieved.
