This paper discusses an efficient discrete model for nonlinear RF power amplifier (PA) with long-term memory effects and analyzes its error. The procedure of converting RF signals and systems into a discrete domain is explained for a discrete baseband memory polynomial model. Unlike a previous simple memory polynomial model, the proposed discrete model has two different sampling frequencies: one for nonlinear system with long-term memory effects and one for input signal. A method to choose an optimal sampling frequency for the system and a discrete memory depth is proposed to minimize the sensitivity of the system for perturbation of the measured data. A two-dimensional sensitivity function which is a product of relative residual and matrix condition number is defined for least square problem of the proposed model. Examples with a wideband WiBro 3FA signal and a WCDMA 4FA signal for nonlinear transmitters are presented to describe the overall procedure and effectiveness of the proposed scheme.
