In one embodiment, the single adaptor is configured to adaptively configure a set of predistortion coefficients based on a memory polynomial digital baseband model of the digital predistorters having a same set of predistortion coefficients for each of the digital predistorters. 
11/20/14 20140344924  Preventing unauthorized calls to a protected function An obfuscated program can be configured to resist attacks in which an attacker directly calls a nonentry function by verifying that an execution path to the function is an authorized execution path. To detect an unauthorized execution order, a secret value is embedded in each function along an authorized execution path.
