    In recent years model and Digital Pre-Distortion dimension reduction has been widely researched. The oper- ations involved when running DPD are often far less than those needed during the training of the DPD coefficients. The proposed partitioned Least Squares (LS) adaptation allows a selected subset of DPD coefficients to be updated while the remaining coefficients are held constant. This technique allows a more adaptive training procedure, improved interpretability of the important DPD coefficient’s during training and the ability to partition the DPD function into specific groups. The Frisch-Waugh-Lovell (FWL) theorem is exploited to partition the coefficients of a DPD basis function trained using LS regression. The proposed methodology was experimentally validated with a Generalized Memory Polynomial (GMP) DPD function, used to linearize a 5W power amplifier (PA) driven by a 40MHz 5G-NR signal.
