To reckon with the high feedback sampling rate of a digital predistortion linearizer for TWTA (Travelling Wave Tube Amplifier), a novel method with compressed sensing is presented in this paper. The Simulation results show that good linearity improvement can be attained for an X-band TWTA with low feedback sampling rate.
